St Richard's Hospice
£3.8M New Build Project
Designed to reflect comfort, calm and dignity, the two-storey hospice provides 24-hour residential care, day care and respite services in a new, purpose-built facility.
The challenge for St Richard’s Hospice was to create a modern building that whilst meeting clinical needs, would offer patients a homely and welcoming environment.
By working closely with hospice staff, One Creative Environments Ltd. (One) was able to deliver a building that offered increased service provision, greater flexibility and ensured both privacy and dignity for patients and their relatives. Following a courtyard-style layout, the space has been configured to separate individual and public areas. Single-bedded rooms open out onto private patios to increase fresh air, improve natural light and help to bring the beauty of the landscape to those who can no longer venture out easily.
