Woolmanhill Hospital


My masters project was an adaptive reuse of a derelict Victorian Granite Hospital in the heart of Aberdeen into a mixed use social housing project.
The ambition for the scheme was rooted in a study of housing policy, and an argument that this out of use public asset can now be put back into use to serve a new public use of housing.

The design is a combination of residential retrofit of the existing and a new build residential tower and block of duplex apartments that are brought together by a central courtyard structure that defines that space as well as providing access and servicing the surrounding buildings.
