Sheffield Children's Hospital - New Wing

Sorry if this has been covered in another thread already.

"Avanti Architects has finally been named as the winner in the competition to design a £40 million extension to the Children’s Hospital, Sheffield

The practice’s ‘light and airy concept’ was chosen ahead of schemes by BDP, HKS Architects, Llewelyn Davies Yeang, Swanke Hayden Connell Architects and a joint bid by Capita Symonds with HLM Architects.

A victor had been expected to be named in January after the designs went on anonymous display. However, the decision was delayed until a full business case was approved.

Building work could start in spring next year with completion planned for spring 2015."

Glad a winner has finally been chosen. I quite like the one they've decided on, its not tremendously unusual but i like that really.

As long as the brickwork is done well the exterior should look fairly classy.

Agree it looks pretty good - but they must use good bricks! The current entrance is pretty awful - and this will be a welcome addition.

I know that there is mention of priority parking, but It appears to me that this wing could reduce the few parking spaces even further.
With the Provision of 72 extra beds, surely this will mean that opportunities for patients from a wider area to use the hospital. Where are the extra 70 cars going to go ?

Its not too bad really, i think the best feature is the latticing/patterns in the brickwork. It has definitely got 50s/60s elements about it but if the quality is good then it will be smart.

Parking tonic hope for Sheffield hospital

PROPOSALS for a £40m wing for Sheffield Children’s Hospital are in line for council approval next week, raising hopes of easing traffic and parking congestion as well as radically creating a ‘world-class’ environment.

Health trust managers look like being given the all-clear to press ahead with a three and four-storey extension, including a new ward block with 72 en-suite bedrooms.

Council officers are praising a “sensitive” design that fits in with the historic buildings that will remain.

They also believe that the redevelopment will help ease some of the traffic and parking problems that have plagued the hospital for years.

A basement car park is due to replace existing surface-level parking spaces, with a new access off Clarkson Street that will be signed ‘left in’ and ‘left out’.

At present, the main entrance to the hospital is off the side street, Durham Road, which leads to “a chaotic situation” with vehicles manoeuvring to reach a drop off point, the car park and hospital servicing areas, says a council report.

Proposed changes will improve visibility for drivers, prevent blockages and improve road safety, it is claimed.

Because medical facilities are being modernised rather than expanded, no extra traffic is envisaged

In the longer term, the University of Sheffield is preparing a scheme for a multi-storey car park to replace the car park on the opposite side of Clarkson Street, which could be also used by visitors to the Children’s Hospital.

Councillors are expected on Monday to approve the details of the whole hospital revamp, which has been designed by architectural company Avanti, which won a design competition.

The extension will front on to Clarkson Street, creating a new a new main entrance, a new outpatients’ department, and a garden for patients and visitors above the car park. There will be a circular play tower from floor to ceiling in the main reception.

The council report says the scheme is “a very well thought through contemporary addition” to the hospital, which has seen piecemeal and unco-ordinated development for many years. Changes are being made “with minimal harm to the neighbouring conservation area”.

A £10m community appeal aims to help pay for the new wing. The remaining £30m is due to come from government and private sources.

Good news. That rejected design posted by Frogged reminds me a lot of the design for the new cinema block on The Moor.

I wonder when this multi-storey car park opposite will be taken forward? The existing car park and outsized uni building are a bit of a blight so it would be good to see at least the car park go, if not the monster building as well.

I doubt the building will go. From what I've seen of it the inside is actually quite modern, and the lower levels already have valuable car parking space. Trying to get a Category A or B permit is nearly impossible (and extortionate), and it's every man for himself when it comes to 8am and trying to find a Cat. C space.

Sounds reasonable. At least a (hopefully) decent multi-storey next to it would do something to balance out the size and mask its ugliness.

Scaffolding has gone up around the existing entrance on Durham Lane, and there's a digger parked up around the side. Hopefully we'll see some movement soon.

There has been a planning application submitted for a multi-story car park on Glossop Road/Durham Road

The red brick and the what looks like wood should look well together, pretty decent design in my opinion

Looks good! Is that wood, metal or plastic? (Order of preference!)
