HOK International for Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Contract value: £165m 
GIA: 43,500m2
Cost per m2: £3,793

The new hospital is a white precast stone and blue-tinted glass structure with an orthogonal base and elliptical glass crown. Relocation of the hospital to a more city centre site on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus allows all services to be incorporated within the same building, simplifying patient and staff journeys. Outpatient and emergency wards are on the ground floor, while inpatients are on the upper levels where floor to ceiling glazing provides calming views of the landscape.
