KEPPIE Design has completed a clinic built with a donation from Harry Potter author J K Rowling.
The practice handed over the Anne Rowling regenerative neurology clinic, a research facility dedicated to patients with multiple sclerosis and other neurological conditions. It was set up following a £10m donation from the author and is named after her mother who died of multiple sclerosis aged 45.
Providing a link between existing Edinburgh University research laboratories, clinical imaging facilities and the patients who use the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh’s Little France campus, the building provides facilities for clinicians, researchers and patients. Keppie provided architecture, interior design and landscape services for the single-storey structure.
Helen Wood at Keppie said: “It has been a fantastic project to be involved with and we are thrilled with the end result.”
Rowling commented: “Every detail seems to have been considered, and I love how the design and the quality of light creates a relaxed, unintimidating and comfortable space where people with these conditions would like to spend time.”
