Sutton Drive Mental Healthcare Unit
Healthcare & Education
The brief for the Sutton Drive Mental Health facility in the West Midlands, was to modernise, improve and bring back to life two detached building and create a inviting and healing environment for children with mental health issues.
The design objective was to be mindful of using the existing site and buildings as a base for the scheme whilst providing an environment that would promote a sense of well-being for both patients and staff, provide a variety of experiences to all users, provide support to all users – especially the patients and provide an improved image of the service and organisation.
The extension and alterations alongside the modern forms, use of materials and finishes reflect the more civic/contemporary status that the site and surrounding development required.
