David Wilson Partnership were commissioned to design a unique care facility to compliment the previously commissioned and completed Seamore Unit at North Devon Hospital. The new facility provides much need drop in and support spaces for people coping with the effects of Cancer. Support is provided by Therapy, Meeting and Consultation Space designed to circulate of a central welcome space offering a relaxing respite and support space – a place to have a cup of tea and chat to support staff.
The facility also offers 3 bedrooms with en-suite facilities for the use of carers and family members when required – particularly for those travelling long distances to provide support for patients undergoing treatments.
The design wraps around an external open space bounded by existing trees in order to create an intimate and peaceful courtyard space.
