RIBA West Midlands Award 2015
RIBA West Midlands Small Project of the Year Award 2015

The new extension to the Hospice building was designed to better accommodate the hospice at home team. This also includes a culturally sensitive sacred space at the hospice to better meet the spiritual care needs of all service users. Additional improvements to the entrance, reception area and the inclusion of a counselling room provides improved privacy to support the provision of care which maintains dignity and affords opportunities for sensitive communication and effective psychological support.


“The Phase 1 & 2 projects were very effectively managed by the Design Management Team (DMT), which was led by KKE Architects.  This £1M investment in the hospice infrastructure has significantly improved access to a high quality care environment, improved the dignity and privacy of patients and their families and contributed to an environment in which the hospice team can deliver effective person-centered care and reduce anxiety and distress in the terminal phase of illness.  Through careful management of the project by KKE and the DMT the project completed to a very high specification and within budget.  Just to cap things off, KKE’s design won two prestigious RIBA Awards”
