St Margaret's Hospital, Epping

Entered through a striking curved blue brick façade, the new St Margaret's Hospital in Epping is arranged axially around a central crescent with two symmetrical ward blocks defining the wings. Each of these blocks is planned around a landscaped courtyard to maximize natural light and ventilation, providing a therapeutic environment to aid patient recovery.

The Hospital includes 66 elderly rehabilitation beds, a day hospital and therapy services including physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, a community clinic, dental services, podiatry and children’s speech and language, together with administration support accommodation.
