Project description:
Arguably the most well known high-security psychiatric hospitals in the UK, Broadmoor Hospital houses men and women with severe mental illness that have often been referred through the criminal justice system.  Medical Architecture worked with BDP to develop an Outline Business Case exploring the redevelopment of the historic estate to bring facilities up to modern standards.

Our collaborative work proposed a new-build on land south east of the Hospital to provide a new entrance building and secure perimeter.

The design housed a total of 18 wards in three blocks linking directly to a central patient therapy mall.
