UCLH Phase 5 wins a Planning Award for Design Excellence

22 06 2017

Yesterday, the specialist ENT and Dental hospital for University College London Hospitals was awarded the Design Excellence award at the Planning Awards 2017.

Our design breaks with traditional hospital design by placing the waiting areas on the exterior street facade within a range of bay windows, with perforated brick screens providing privacy.

Great to hear judges praised the "innovative design" that relocates the "public and waiting areas" to the building’s exterior and "uses natural light to great effect". They described the project as "a game changer for hospital design".

UCLH Phase 5, currently under construction, marks the latest phase of the hospital’s main campus regeneration. The building will house a state-of-the-art ear, nose and throat specialist clinical facility in the heart of historic Camden.
