The relationship we have with our health is growing far more prominent in modern life, and the space in which we nurture health, although clinical, does not necessarily have to be within a cold and detached environment.
Our design combines the high levels of pragmatism, essential to good medical design, with intimacy and accessibility. This creates a stress-free setting of simple routes, open spaces and beautiful interiors.
Our approach was formed following extensive consultation with the medical staff. We focused on simplifying the internal planning to promote intuitive pathfinding for visitors and staff.
The development at New Victoria Hospital consists of four new state of the art operating theatres, associated clinical accommodation, a new 14-bed Day Surgery Unit, a new Outpatients Department, with minor procedure suites, as well as staff facilities and an extended Imaging Department.
