The Hospice design gathers around a series of courtyards a set of public, semi-private and private spaces that provide a successful setting for the therapy and support provided for patients.  The design-through-workshop process alongside the Hospice team offered our client a creative and challenging way of imagining their future services and the place in which this would be carried out. It was also a successful way of developing understanding and trust between designers and client. Many influences bear on the final design outcome – research into ideas of ‘An Architecture of Hope’, the semi-rural setting and a context of rural buildings, ideas of simplicity, of connection (both physical and metaphysical)  between inside and outside, and the creation of a place for the community.
