Inpatient complex with 312 beds to provide Adult and Forensic (including Learning Disabilities) Mental Health Services built adjacent to the now demolished St. Luke’s Hospital

The complex is set within a landscape structure which supports both underlying roles of the institution: therapeutic care and security. The therapeutic benefits of contact with nature are taken advatage of with buildings and wards arranged around a series of gardens and courtyards with each patient given close and free access to the outdoors.

Separate zones for adult and forensic services have been created through a series of individual units that provide services for specific groups of users that share a main entrance and a number of support facilities.

This allows for ‘swing beds’ to be allocated to different units to reflect gender and capacity requirements. Single loaded corridors around courtyards allows for easy conversion within units and creation of smaller clusters.
