Now sitting in place of the former Mary Seacole House on Clapham High Street, is a mixed use development with residential accommodation across 12 floors featuring communal terraces and striking window pods, atop shared community facilities, including a new state-of-the-art library and a modern GP surgery.
The Clapham Family Practice forms a major part of the scheme occupying the ground floor with an area of 1,844msq for the Primary Care Trust to offer its specialist services that are tailored to local demand. A shared entrance with the library leads up, via a ramp, to a combined waiting area and reception for the Health Centre with feature roof lights providing natural daylight to this internal space with views out to the rear Landscaped Courtyards, which provide a pleasant and calming outlook from the majority of consulting rooms.
