Princess Grace Hospital ITU, London W1
This project was not just a refurbishment of ITU facilities, it was a hugely complex design exercise to resolve significant level differences between two properties without introducing a lift or reducing the accommodation.
The solution was the installation of a gently curved ramp for bed transfer which now forms an elegant architectural feature at the ward entrance.
The Princess Grace Hospital gained the opportunity to expand their intensive and post-surgical care services into an adjacent commercial property in 2010, after already occupying two floors of the latter for clinical use.
A total of 10 intensive care beds are provided in a mixture of bed bays, individual rooms and isolation rooms. The finishes allude to the Princess Grace preferred colour palette whilst complying with the rigorous infection control standards.
The surgical ward on the floor above is an extension of a previously refurbished ward on the same floor. New bedrooms had to adopt a similar look and layout.
