The design of this 12-bed discharge and six-bed recovery unit aims to reduce the sense of a clinical facility. Habitable rooms are either outward-facing or get their light and views from one of the two courtyards they are arranged around. Single storey glazed links maximise daylight in the breakout spaces and create a calm environment. Facades on the ‘interior’ of the scheme are softened by the use of timber with glazed infill. There is also timber seating in the courtyard and interior spaces.
