Design for Paediatric Mental Health at AlderHey Childrens Hospital
Roddy Langmuir, Practice Leader – Cullinan Studio
I’ll explain our approach creating a welcoming, engaging environment for a cluster of paediatric services gathered around a courtyard garden, along with a tier 4 residential building, a 12 bed Dewi Jones unit that must combine robust design with a stimulating range of learning and therapy rooms that will contribute to recovery.
This was an RIBA competition winning design that will start on site in 2019, sited in a visionary parkland landscape adjacent the AlderHey Childrens Hospital in Liverpool.
Chris & Sally’s House – Living with Dementia
Bill Halsall, Partner – Halsall Lloyd Partnership
Chris & Sally’s House is a recently completed demonstration project at the Building Research Establishment in Watford, which shows how a terraced property can be converted to assist people to live with dementia.
The design has been developed by a collaboration between the BRE, Loughborough University and the Halsall Lloyd Partnership acting as Architects and Interior Designers.
The design objective is to enable people living with dementia to ‘age in place’ in the comfort of their own home, sustaining their capacity for longer and maintaining their quality of life as members of the community.
