Designed to change people’s perception of healthcare, the Waldron is planned around a new civic square framed by the health centre, shops, a cafe and housing. Inside, the centre is organised around two courtyard gardens and a 5-storey foyer with artwork by artist Martin Richman.

‘Waldron is elegant, urbane and it works – a towering exception to the rule of contemporary health centre architecture and a building that will endure.’ Kieran Long, 2011
