Civic Trust Award, Commendation

St Johns Hill Health Centre, London | Henley Halebrown Rorrison

St John's Therapy Centre illustrates how a community health building can balance functionality and humanity with a strong civic presence. 
The centre brings together under one roof community-based therapy services for accident and stroke victime, a mental health unit for drugs and alcohol dependent patients and two GP practices. 
The objective of the practice's design was to change peoples' perception about healthcare buildings. Built around two courtyards, and overlooking two side streets, the design creates a private aspect for a high proportion of clinical rooms. Internal circulation is arranged around these courtyards, in the form of cloisters, gives the Centre a distinct character, as well as good daylight and easy wayfinding.
