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.

Haematology Dept, Southampton General

Although this project was initially part of the Oncology PFI, time pressures demanded that the Clinical Haematology Centre became a stand-alone project. Phase 1 consisted of 9 new Bone Marrow Transplant rooms where a whole floor was required to provide filtered air to each individual isolation room where patients may stay for up to six weeks.

Helipad, Southampton General

Studio Four designed a helipad capable of accommodating the largest helicopters used in civilian rescue.
