The New Independent Living Centre at  Gremista in Lerwick was purpose built for NHS Shetland and Shetland Islands Council to provide a 1500sqm of accommodation for occupational,  speech and language therapists and care at home staff.

The building design maximises a steeply sloping site to create a three storey building with split level access on the ground and third floor. This sectional organisation  of the accommodation clearly defines and rationalises  the different processes  and functions within the building.  Deliveries, storage, and maintenance of highly specialised equipment is located on the ground floor. Office and staff accommodation occupies the middle floor with spectacular views across the harbour. All public access areas for  demonstration, training  and consultations are housed on the third floor with its own entrance reception and  upper level car park.

The building serves as a one-stop-shop for information, equipment and staff training and enables over  2000 people in the isles who require specialised equipment to remain in their own home.
