Lowry Treatment Centre St James Hospital Portsmouth
The Lowry Treatment Centre is a Day Hospital used by patients suffering from dementia or similar mental health problems operated by NHS Portsmouth at St James' Hospital.
The facility was created by the refurbishment of two former Day Units plus a new extension containing a main entrance and administrative facilities.
The extension mimicked the existing building from the facing brick to the feature quoins, whereas a lightweight glass structure creates a bright entrance point to make way-finding easier.
The interior has been designed to balance a healthcare facility and a domestic environment. Bright colours and warm materials were chosen for the decoration and furnishings. The unit is divided into a number of discrete rooms that offer the patients a variety of environments, complete with clinical support facilities. There is also an Occupational Therapy Kitchen where the ability of patients to cook for themselves at home can be assessed.
Externally, a small private garden area was created that allows patients to enjoy the space whilst remaining secure.
