Baldry Gardens Health Centre

Henley Halebrown as architect

Baldry Gardens Health Centre is located at the junction of Baldry Gardens, a tree-lined residential street and Streatham High Road, a major south London arterial. It is sited on a plot where the land slopes gently from northeast to southwest and is surrounded predominantly by brick buildings, with the exception of the complex of 4-5 storey flats to the south dating from the 1960s that have recently been renovated and overclad with render.The new 1,030 sq m 2-storey brick building replaces a single storey centre on the same site. The building form is dictated by the constraints of the site, resulting in an L-shaped plan. This form affords two wings of cellular rooms arranged either side of a central corridor separated by a reception area and waiting room. Given the clinical setting, any conflict that might have arisen between a daylit interior and a concern for dignity is resolved by placing clinical rooms and consulting rooms on the 1st floor. The principal reception/waiting room is also located on the first floor in a light filled double aspect space at the centre of the plan. The ground floor is reserved for office accommodation, store rooms, plant rooms and a flexible suite for group activities leading on to a walled garden.
