The Tooley & Foster Partnership have designed a masterplan and programme for the phased redevelopment of St Clare Hospice Headquarters which is to take place over the next 5 years to address the Hospice’s foreseeable needs.
St Clare Hospice is a growing charity that offers high quality End of Life Care through a limited number of in-patient bed-spaces which they plan to double in size. The same level of increase is also required for their Day Care facilities and their Outreach Team. The challenge was to create a design that would stop expensive piece-meal extensions and alterations to their current premises, and set in place a plan that would lead to a co-ordinated redevelopment of their facilities.
The implementation of this plan began by refurbishing the existing in-patient rooms, with time, care and sensitivity in managing the construction work to cause the least inconvenience. The plan is now continuing to the second phase with redevelopment of the Sales, Management and Administration areas.
