Hopkins Architects has completed the recladding of the East Wing of St Thomas’ Hospital in London
The slate, teak, and ceramic tiled façade of the 13-storey tower, which was originally built in the sixties, has been retained and refurbished with new glazed cladding added along the building’s western side.
A pair of new atria containing bed lifts and an art installation have also been added.
The scheme was completed while the 200-bed hospital wing remained in use.
The practice has worked on various schemes at the hospital including the 2006 Stirling Prize-shortlisted Evelina Children’s Hospital.
