A Chapel and Maternity Hospital for unmarried mothers dating from the 1920s with a sad history of adopted babies was the site for a new Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Unit.

The project seeks, by engulfing the older buildings, to change their nature, reversing patterns of use with a new entrance block on the north and rooms around a new garden on the south, putting nature at the centre of recovery.

Linking the former chapel and hospital with a timber/zinc canopy across the garden, new volumes are clad in larch, with folded roofs bringing light deep into the plans. The older buildings are like rocks in a sea of timber and green.
