Maudsley Hospital Redevelopment
SLaM NHS Trust
187 Residential Units
South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) instructed ESA to explore options for repurposing and redeveloping a cluster of buildings on the Maudsley Hospital site.
The existing Mapother House, Michael Rutter Centre, Professorial Building at the Maudsley Hospital site are no longer fit for purpose. ESA's proposal aims to release value from surplus estate at Maudsley Hospital for SLaM to reinvest back into their current and future hospital and community facilities while creating much needed new homes, for local people in Southwark.
The proposal delivers a nursery and 187 residential units of which 50% are affordable. The proposed architecture along DeCrespigny Park is a contemporary take of the Victorian villas on the other side of the road and is stepped to create vertical proportions. The architecture around the proposed courtyards takes queues from the vibrant red brick used on the historic buildings across the Maudsley Campus. The landscape design enhances the ecological value and habitats of the site which includes the planting of 97 new trees.
As a predominantly car-free development, the scheme promotes sustainable transport with 568 cycle spaces and car club membership for residents for three years. The proposed site arrangement also creates a new pedestrian link through the Maudsley Hospital Site to Denmark Hill Station, greatly improving connectivity and public realm in the area.
