Keynote by White Architects – Architects of the St. Erik Eye Hospital and the new upcoming Moorfields Eye Hospital
Design proposals for Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and UCL’s Institute of Ophthalmology (project name Oriel) were approved by Camden Council’s planning committee at the end of June. Designed by White Arkitekter, AECOM and Penoyre & Prasad, Oriel integrates world-class eye care and research for Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and UCL’s Institute of Ophthalmology, within the high-tech setting of the King’s Cross & St Pancras Knowledge Quarter.
The ambition was to shape a place that was far removed from the traditional British hospital or healthcare facility. In a similar vein to White’s Swedish healthcare project New Karolinska biomedical campus in Stockholm, Oriel is designed to actively foster knowledge exchange between leading care and research institutions to deliver the greatest benefits for patients.
Drawing on White Arkitekter’s significant research into healing environments, light and materiality, our evidence-based design supports recovery, while shaping a high-performance workplace for staff.
