08.06.2023

 

The National Forensic Mental Hospital was awarded Project of the Year – New Build International and Outside Space of the Year at the Design in Mental Health Awards, which took place on Wednesday 7th June in Coventry.

We are proud to share that the National Forensic Mental Hospital was awarded Project of the Year – New Build International, and Outside Space of the Year, at the Design in Mental Health 2023 Awards, designed in collaboration with Medical Architecture to provide a safe, secure, and healing environment for patients. The hospital maximises the therapeutic value of outside space through a carefully considered approach to architectural design, landscaping, colour, and art, using carefully selected planting to enhance the biodiversity of the existing woodland site. Biodiversity enhancement measures include native woodland planting, appointment of a Biodiversity Manager for the site and specific biodiversity measures for birds, bats, mammals, and invertebrates. Permanent Signage was installed to educate and update the public on the enhancement measures undertaken. 

As recognised by these awards, the 130-bed North Dublin campus demonstrates industry-leading design for best clinical practice.
