Bedroom doors are individually coloured in soft pastel shades to help patients identify their own rooms. Ground floor rooms for those who so desire have direct access to small individual garden areas which are cultivated by the occupants. In contrast to the original Victorian building, the new work is predominately clad in dark brown brick. Elevations are pierced with regularly spaced, deeply recessed, two-storey panels with floor to ceiling glazing on each floor. Recessed floor spandrel panels are brick clad.
