Holistic architecture

I've just come back from visiting family in the north of Scotland, where my sister-in-law is keen on building her own timber house (or rather having it built for her). One of the firms she is looking at is Woodco, using a design by Irish architect Michael Rice, shown above.

A little Googling finds Michael's own site at, and some photographs of his lovely, almost Steineresque, designs. Interestingly he has developed a plan for a pharmacy.

I've looked at the design of healthcare environments a number of times in this blog, and I just wish that we could be a bit braver when commissioning new buildings and come up with something other than square boxes.
