51 The Gardens Hospital (NHS/NAViGO), Grimsby

The scheme was for a new adolscent health unit on land adjacent to 'The Gardens', Diana Princess of Wales Hospital, Grimsby. 

The building was carefully designed to make sure the 'institutional feel' of a hospital was avoided, and a more residential character was acheived; to ensure that the young clientele felt as 'at home' as possible during their stay.

One way to achieve this was to separate the admin and main staff operations from the ‘house’, with a secure walled garden space between. Attention to detail will also avoid unsightly 'hospital-style' doors, signage, colours, etc.
