Extension to Primary Medical Centre, Tralee
DM Architects were asked to design an extension to a medical centre Manor Tralee. Situated on a mature site,. The simple pitched volumes sensitively echo surrounding buildings with two masonry wings housing the public medical facilities on ground floor. A glazed entrance and waiting room is set between Traditional and inventive use of materials such as brickwork and tiles add a sense of permanence and quality to the scheme. The fenestration shifts from a loose composition at the most prominent corner to a more regular off-set pattern as you move around the building. A medical cross motif is formed on the primary elevation using projecting brick headers. A prominent triangular sign marks the entrance and continues the angular architectural language of the roof pitches. Internal signage further reinforces the theme, with a warm colour scheme running through the paint finishes to the furniture specification.
