Located adjacent to the listed maternity building within the Lagan Valley Hospital complex, the design comprises a four storey building and adjacent car park on the steeply sloping site, set on a plinth which integrates into the ground at the main entrance.
White Ink Architects are working in collaboration with Scott Tallon Walker Architects on the new Community Treatment and Care Centre (CTCC) for Lisburn.
Following an initial site appraisal and analysis, and with consideration of the overall site masterplan and site specific contextual conditions, White Ink produced feasibility design stage drawings for initial discussion with the Planning Authority. The masterplan analysis looked at existing site circulation issues in the context of the new development and made proposals which informed road layout and parking provision beyond the brief for the CTCC.
Outline Planning Permission was granted and Reserved Matters application documents have been submitted following the award of preferred bidder at tender stage.
“White Ink Architects were always happy to engage in matters of minor detail, and that underpinned the success of this development.”
“We approached White Ink Architects following the viewing of their project – The Hill House. We felt that their careful response to working with and integration to existing buildings would be key to the success of our project. We are delighted with the openness of the new glazed extension and its ability to cross the divide between the internal and external realms.”
“White Ink Architects stood by their concept throughout design development and were able to demonstrate value when aspects of the design were challenged… such conviction has paid off… Project deliverables have met programme and quality targets.”
“They combine design flair with technical knowledge and bring the much needed element of ‘common sense’ to the design and build process.”
“They work in a collaborative and responsive way showing consideration and understanding of our functional needs, and our financial and time constraints.”
“They are always pro-active and prompt in dealing with the day to day issues that occur on a project.”
“…the refurbishment of the Whitehall Building is a feather in the cap for Sandy Row… its refurbishment breathes new life into the area.”
“White Ink Architects provided a unique and strong visual solution to this project working closely with our teams to ensure functionality was not compromised.”
