Evelina Childrens Hospital, London

Designed by Hopkins Architects and opened in 2005, Evelina Childrens Hospital at St Thomas Hospital on London’s South Bank was a new approach to health care design.

Hopkins planned a simple section of two long blocks flanking a central concourse rising the full height of the building. The three lower levels house shared functions - the Intensive Care Unit, three operating theatres, imaging equipment and the outpatient departments. Above are three floors of wards overlooking a spacious conservatory, under a great, curved glazed roof. 

The base of the conservatory is the social heart of the building, called the Beach. It has views into the garden of Lambeth Palace, and is large enough for a café and waiting areas, with space for play sessions, lessons, exhibitions and informal performances.

Throughout this space, hm61 seats and hm88 benches upholstered in a variety of coloured vinyl contribute to the holistic approach of the building.
