The brief was for the refurbishment of the existing primary care unit to form a multipurpose clinical area for clinics in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Head and Neck MDTs, Neck Lump Ultrasound and suspected cancer. The space was also to be was shared with ‘Cleft clinics’ relocated from Frenchay Hospital.
A new multi-purpose teaching room and “knowledge room” for sensitive discussions was also included.
The client’s strong desire was for the space not to feel like a clinic or hospital, but for it to be smart and business-like. Furniture and wall finishes were specially designed to give this impression.
