The re-provision of new buildings for mental health services included a new mental health unit, and continuing care and day units. The design focused on providing a high quality environment for the patients. Key elements included high levels of day lighting, safe access to internal and external gardens and wandering routes both indoors and out of doors.

Our understanding that it is in mental health units that the built environment and the provision of access to external spaces has the most impact on patients enabled us to contribute to a very patient-friendly design, while also ensuring that the logistics of the complex were efficient and safe.
