Birmingham Treatment Centre Birmingham, UK
Sheppard Robson’s pioneering design for the Birmingham Treatment Centre improves the patient experience, and reduces feelings of patient anxiety, by providing a positive and calm environment for all. As part of the research for the project, Sheppard Robson visited facilities in North America and took elements of best practice to apply in the UK. A strict zonal diagram of public, social, private and intimate spaces was followed.
The space was organised around a central hub, reducing the requirement for a hospital street. The clinics are ‘multi-occupation’, and this is one of the first examples of the ACAD model in the UK.
The building acts as a beacon for the regeneration of the area, the blue drum is a calm architectural addition clearly indicating the entrance to the centre.
