Design for good mental health: radically different clinical spaces for young people, designed through conversations with service users, NHS staff, parents and carers.
London practice Projects Office designed interiors and courtyard features of the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) unit for 5-18 year olds at Edinburgh’s Royal Hospital for Children and Young People.
Directly informed by workshops with end-users, the scheme is a colourful, light-filled "third space": neither hospital nor home, but a healing space with its own identity. This new architectural language promotes good mental health, establishing interior environments as a critical part of the healing toolkit.
