The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice
We were delighted to be involved in this innovative project : Bute Fabrics were specified in many of the communal areas of the Hospice. We worked closely with the teams at Burns Design and Ryder Architecture, who selected Bute as part of their beautiful interior scheme due to our commitment to quality and durability within the versatile Bute range.
The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice is the first palliative care facility in the UK to follow the Sengetun model of healthcare design, designed by international design practice Ryder Architecture. The Sengetun layout is especially supportive to patients with confusion, sensory impairments or dementia. The open communal areas create a sense of place, positively impacting on the quality of all visitor experiences, including staff and relatives as well as patients.
'The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice is leading the way in palliative care and transforming the traditional concept of a hospice to providing an exemplar person centred care facility. Wholly contemporary, the new hospice is and is a special place which feels comfortably like home - humble, dignified, unobtrusive and private when required.' - Alastair Forbes, Architectural Director at Ryder Architecture
