Greenhill Jenner has officially unveiled its new £9.6 million extension to St Joseph's Hospice in Hackney, east London.
The recently completed building houses 61 beds, making St Joseph's the largest hospice in the UK.
Part of a planned redevelopment of the Mare Street site, the five-storey L-shaped extension also connects with the existing hospice building to create a new courtyard.
The patients' rooms - a mix of single, family and four-bed wards - overlook this space, while family accommodation and examination rooms face on to the main road.
