LOC - 93 & 97 HARLEY STREET, London W1

The approach has been to add obviously modern insertions into the period buildings to provide more intimate enclosure for patient comfort and dignity, affording a pleasing juxtaposition of new and old to often dramatic effect.

The role of the facility is to provide the highest level of outpatient cancer care and support future care through research. The Georgian properties contained volumes and detail which the new design uncovered, restored and gave new expression to. They have been adapted to the benefit of the occupants while ensuring that the environment is accessible and appropriate for healthcare with all the necessary supporting engineering and attention to detail for infection control. This has been achieved without detrimentally affecting the historic fabric of the building.
