Previous Arrow Next Arrow

This prestigious building, which serves as a headquarters and treatment centre, is intended to be a safe and welcoming environment, providing facilities for therapy, treatment and support for victims of torture from anywhere in the world.
Care has been taken to develop spaces which contribute to the psychological healing process. The building presents a simple frontage to the busy road penetrated by a deep blue glazed wall which marks the entrance. Once inside the space opens up with views to upper galleries and through into a secret garden. This central space serves as the datum for the wayfinding through the building.
The four storey 2,500 m2 building’s structure is a hybrid of reinforced concrete frame, steel frame and masonry which was clad in ‘feature’ blockwork, mosaic tiling, structural glazing and insulated render. Intelligent and integrated mechanical & electrical services ensure that the building is energy efficient.  Rainwater harvesting enhances its’ environmentally aware design.
The centre provides facilities a wide range of services including medical consultation, examination, psychological and physical treatment, therapy and support.
