The corner glazing is a prime focus, particularly after dark when the site is still busy with late night shoppers, creating an atmospheric presence for the surgery, within the immediate environment.
At ground level, the waiting room houses a feature window visible from either approach? via the Asda car park, or from Bedminster parade.
The central pane of the upper half of this window features a large format photographic image of an Alium head, referencing the important role that plants play in health & medication.
Below this, spanning the 3 lower panes of the window & visible only to the outside, is a back lit highly detailed image of roots combined with text from Gerard?s? Herbal; & subtly layered with the word ?family? written in a variety of languages (inclusive of sign language) familiar to the surgery community.
The first floor windows above depict blades of wheatgrass speckled with dew - a continuation of growth from the roots below.
