Firrhill Respite Centre
The project creates a new facility that is based on a typology of pavilion and garden architecture and it is intended to be subsidiary to the existing Day Centre opposite whilst forming its own frame of reference against the landscape.
City of Edinburgh Council
The building is constructed from a steel frame with well insulated timber framing infill and is clad entirely with vertical Siberian larch boarding with elements of zinc.
The brief was to design a new Respite Care Centre for Edinburgh City Council which would provide accommodation for 8 respite clients, including private bedroom and en-suite facilities and shared living / dining facilities.
The plan is straightforward; a double height social space to the front is viewed as the heart of the building with the bedrooms arranged along its length to the rear. The interiors are thoughtfully designed to ensure maximisation of views to the landscape beyond.
The expressed form creates a civic presence on a human scale as an attempt to create an opposite to the standard form of residential architecture associated with respite centres.
