Rehabilitation Hospital, Southampton
Our winning competition entry provided a design for an integrated and flexible facility that responded sensitively to the existing hospital setting.
The design accommodates multiples of single and four bed bays. Using these modules within the structure of a regular and repeating grid has allowed modern methods of construction to be utilised with a large proportion of the external wall to be manufactured off site.
The project brief was developed through multiple stakeholder workshops involving clinicians, facilities and administrative staff. During the workshops, the core rehabilitation pathways were mapped and functional content agreed; including one 18 bed neurological ward, two 25 bed rehabilitation wards and therapy facilities (occupational health and physiotherapy).
The users of the building will be able to enjoy two landscaped external amenity spaces; the central courtyard and the South facing terrace. The terrace is a prominent feature of the building design and is enclosed by planted screen and decorative trellis.
