About the project

Internal alterations and refurbishment works were required to upgrade Thornhill Doctors Surgery in Southampton to make it suitable for the relocated Child and Family services. The existing 2-storey clinic building which was originally designed by Studio Four Architects in 2004 also required some modernisation to bring it up to date in line with Solent NHS Trusts latest design standards.

This new Child and Family Hub comprises of new consultation rooms, a Health Education Room, a new Play and Stay Room and updated Patient Waiting and staff areas.  Part of the internal re-organisation also involved the formation of a second reception specifically for the GP surgery and improvements to the external landscaping areas and addition of a secure staff cycle storage area.

One of the biggest challenges of the scheme was to provide an updated and more open and spacious ground floor waiting area for patients. Alongside the bright chairs, a contemporary open partition was designed to divide the room more efficiently, but allowing light and connection to flow through the space whilst also allowing staff to see all patients in the room.
