Designed by Avanti Architects

Avanti Architects’ approach to hospital design is to analyse the clinical functionality and re-engineer the process in collaboration with the hospital in an inter-active process which produces new and appropriate architectural responses to this most rapidly changing building type.

The Ambulatory Care and Diagnostic Centre, Central Middlesex Hospital:

  • first Ambulatory Care and Diagnostic Centre in Europe
  • it provides elective surgery, consulting and diagnostic facilities designed on patient-focused care principles
  • separates 24-hour elective cares from long-stay and acute, allowing scheduled care to occur without disruption by emergencies
  • the high quality accommodation is planned and managed in such a way as to encourage interaction between specialists and to break down traditional divisions between clinical disciplines
  • patient focused design – integrates social and therapeutic issues with the resolution of clinical functions
  • a toplit double height gallery connects the principal parts of the Centre to provide simple and legible movement patterns and waiting areas in elegant sunlit spaces
