CircleBath Hospital, UK by Foster + Partners


Schedule for grand opening in February 2010, the CircleBath is mentioned as the first hospital designed by Foster + Partners. Comparable to a luxury hotel, the three-storey building consists of operating theatres, bedrooms, consultation, treatment and recovery spaces, and offers both in-patient and out-patient accommodation.

Spencer de Grey, Head of Design at Foster + Partners, commented:
“There is a wealth of evidence to suggest that a well-designed hospital environment can reduce recovery times and contribute to better outcomes for patients, while providing a more attractive workplace for medical staff. This is Foster + Partners’ first hospital building and its design is democratic, putting the patient at the heart of the system in a space that does not feel institutionalised and instead takes advantage of the rural setting, the light and the views.”
