Quattro was selected to cleverly convert a four-storey office block, in order to create a new hub for the city’s community Mental Health and Learning Disability services.
With varied user groups from dementia to alcohol and drug addiction, the project required a keen eye for detail. In particular, the reception desk had to be friendly and welcoming, as well as being robust and secure to protect employees. Therefore, the team applied their extensive experience in Mental Health Design to commission and implement a bespoke reception desk that achieved these aims and allowed the project to stay within budget.
The state-of-the-art conversion comprises:
The ground floor – a combination of consultation rooms, group rooms for art-based therapy sessions, clinics, healthcare family clinics, as well as a bespoke reception area that is welcoming, but provides staff with security within a potentially high risk environment.
The upper floors – office accommodation, housing 300+ staff, has been transformed to cater for the Crisis/ Perinatal/ AOT/ Recovery/ Older Persons & CLDT/ LDISS/ IHOT/ ICT and other services, with an iterative design process to cater for each team’s needs.
