Bristol Heart Institute

Award winning design for a specialist cardiac unit for Bristol Royal Infirmary.

The sensitive nature of the site (adjacent to a conservation area), and the desire to create a tranquil environment conducive to rehabilitation resulted in an innovative and elegant design solution. The building is dual aspect. The north side, facing a local residential area has a more domestic feel and is only visible through a curtain of trees. The south side is much grander in proportion in response to the scale and mass of the existing hospital.

The building has repeatedly been praised in the architectural press for the quality of the design. It was recognised by a number of design awards including an RIBA Town and Country Award in 2010 and the Rose Award for best Healthcare building design outside of London. The dedicated centre provides outpatient clinics, operating theatres, cardiac and cardiology day case facilities, MRI and CT suites, teaching and university research facilities, wards and support services.
