Top practices battle for St Thomas' Hospital scheme

  • Comment
NEWS

Four architectural heavyweights are competing to design a signature building for St Thomas'Hospital in London. Guy's and St Thomas' Charitable Foundation has drawn up the shortlist from submissions to a competition launched last year.

The identity of the four 'extremely well-known internationally and well-respected' architects will not be announced until the autumn.

The trust hopes the scheme - for a key 1.2ha site at Founder's Place opposite the main hospital building - will use 'statement architecture' to 'set new standards for key worker accommodation'.

The scheme will provide 400 key worker units with additional private residential units to help finance the project. There will be a 22-bed facility for the families of sick children visiting the Evelina Children's Hospital by Michael Hopkins and Partners, and a day nursery for children of NHS staff.

St Thomas' hopes to announce the winning bid in October.
