Mace challenge you to design like an architect

Student Design Competition

Can you rise to the challenge and design a new health centre?

The Brief

You have been appointed as architect to design a new health centre in a small town in the UK. The health centre is next to the park, where there is plenty of green space and has a bus stop and cycle pathway next to it. The only requirements you have been given by the local Council are that it must be welcoming and accessible to everyone and should be able to accommodate 6 consultation rooms, reception, toilets and a waiting room. The rest is entirely up to you.

You must provide a design for the health centre, created by hand or using Google Sketchup, a programme that is used by students and professionals in building design

Challenge yourself:

  • Can you meet the brief?
  • How practical is the design?  
  • Have you thought about the aesthetic (how the building looks)?
  • What skills have you demonstrated?
  • Is it creative and innovative?
  • What about sustainability?
