Hull Royal Infirmary New Main Entrance and Paediatric Department

Race Cottam Associates

The project involves a new three storey extension and remodelling to the existing tired main entrance and provides a new frontage and focal point which welcomes and guides users to the hospital.Internally the double height atrium and heart space has been designed to enhance visitor, patient and staff experience. The scheme provides significantly enhanced facilities for Paediatrics services and new overnight accommodation for parents. Natural references throughout help elevate the exterior and interior spaces, eliminating the feeling of being in a ‘standard hospital’.The project has created a high quality, calming environment which has transformed user experience.
