The Waldron Health Centre

The Waldron Health Centre

The Waldron Health Centre, based in New Cross, groups 5 local GP practices along with ancillary community services (Pharmacy, Mother & Baby services, Community Youth Programmes, etc) into a building at the heart of the New Cross locality. The building benefits from a full-height atrium, clad in beech veneer, being he chosen location for  ‘New Cross’ montage which was commissioned for the 2nd Floor.

The montage, featuring local noteworthy architecture, highlights the rich mix of styles and forms that is the glory of urban London. The soft, pastel colourway was selected to harmonise both with the beech veneer of the atrium and with a dichroic film panel installation, installed as part of the build phase, on the 1st Floor.

In 2008 the Waldron Health Centre won the award for Better Primary Healthcare Building.
