Located in Crawley, United Kingdom, Langley Green Hospital was designed by Devereux Architects. The innovative design gains maximum benefit from the semi-urban site. The wards are positioned as pavilions in the outer areas with their distinct dedicated gardens. In the centre, linking three of the wards, is the therapy area which also forms the main circulation spine.
A high priority for the hospital was the need for patients to have personal space and meaningful activity. Throughout, importance has been given in the design to creating the most appropriate internal and external environments, which provide interest and variety for patients. The use of interior and exterior spatial concepts, colour, natural and artificial lighting and art all create variety, as well as providing stimulation or calmness where appropriate.
Langley Green Hospital provides an outstanding care environment to high praise from stakeholders including local councillors, commissioners, local residents as well as patients and staff.
