NHS Fife Fife, UK
Sheppard Robson is working with NHS Fife to develop a strategy to reshape its General Hospitals and Maternity Services. The Victoria Hospital site in Kirkcaldy is at the heart of a reshaping exercise and will absorb and expand the transfer of facilities from Forth Park Hospital. Sheppard Robson has designed a new acute services building to provide state-of-the-art healthcare.
In order to avoid an institutional appearance, the new building has a curving public façade and a strategic use of colour and transparency around public areas. The building is clad in a white render, which is articulated with punched windows and terracotta panels.
The new-build strategy is to logically divide the site into three defined parts – buildings, landscape and parking. The strategy brings visitors in from the western side of the estate segregated from emergency and services vehicles which access the site from the north-east.
