Discover hospital and healthcare buildings designed to put patients’ wellbeing first

Every architect appreciates the need to balance cost-efficiency, functionality and longevity when designing for public spaces – but when it comes to hospital and healthcare architecture, these challenges become even more pronounced. How can you create a therapeutic environment that puts patients and healthcare providers at the heart of its design, while also remaining fundamentally functional, allowing for cleanliness, flexibility, and the efficient use of space?

Discover how Eastwood Health and Care Centre was designed around two external courtyards, maximising natural light and ventilation throughout the building, for a more welcoming atmosphere that brings the outside in. See how Ronald McDonald respite homes create a modern, but reassuringly domestic safe place for families of children being treated at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children. Learn how one architect realised the vision for a modern mental health facility, providing welcoming yet functional homes for 16 residents with long-term mental health illnesses.

This collection of hospital architecture showcases the very best of healthcare building design. From multi-purpose health and care centres, to respite homes, mental health facilities and more, you’ll find examples of what’s possible when architects work with the best materials to deliver an outstanding healthcare design.
