The Hospice care home is situated in Peckham, within Caroline Gardens. The site comprises of a Grade II listed building that encompasses a small community of Georgian houses and a Listed garden that can be enjoyed by both the patients and their family.
The Peckham Hospice Care Home is a facility that provides all the necessary apparatus while providing comfort to the patients. It also seeks to improve the quality of life and well being of adults and children with terminal illness, helping them live as fully as they can for the precious time they have left. It aspires to be accessible to all who could benefit and reflect personal preferences and needs. People who have gone to a hospice care don’t live shorter than others, in fact, most actually live longer.
In my architectural proposal, one of the key technical drivers to this project is the retention of the facade, allowing the historic features of the houses to continue into the future while refurbishing the interior space. The other key technical driver to this project is the adjustable and movable facade so as to allow for communal and isolation spaces to occur depending on the patient’s needs.
