RIBA Award winner, 19 May 2011

This is a single storey lightweight structure perched over A& E and the fracture clinic. It is situated in a busy and chaotic part of the town, cut off by roads and surrounded by hospital buildings with different dates, styles and looks all embracing one other.

The design has achieved an oasis of peace and calm while still meeting the very specific and stringent requirements set by the NHS. The attention to details and to colours is quite remarkable. The entry corridor with free forms carved out of the thick internal wall to one side is witty and enjoyable and makes for a pleasant approach to the units.
