In July, St. Anne’s Hospital, a health care campus and the headquarters of Barnet, Enfield, and the NHS Trust in London, opened the first phase of the new campus. The $ 26 million Blossom Court Mental Health Hospital building houses four mental health departments.
The four wings are arranged around two private courtyards, allowing plenty of daylight to penetrate the interior spaces and provide patients with a positive focal point as they cross the building.
To support physical health, exercise equipment is provided in both the yards and terraces of the building. Since the outdoor spaces can be accessed independently, patients can engage in the activity at the time they feel most comfortable, without the help of the staff.
The building’s exterior has been designed to integrate with future phases, including the adjacent residential community. By accommodating the outdoor spaces, the building itself provides its own secure fencing without the need for perimeter fences.
