At the moment Danish design is thriving in an ever wider number of fields and Møller's will bring their considerable track record and experience of designing high quality health environments to this very important project.''

Robert Barr, Director of Estates at South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust (SWLSTG) said: 'We are delighted that CF Møller have won this hard fought RIBA competition. Their designs show innovation and quality of the highest standard. There were a number of outstanding architects who participated in the competition and we would like to thank everyone who took the time to submit proposals.

I want to reiterate our commitment to work with local partners and stakeholders in delivering a landmark development, combining both the quality of health facilities which we all expect for our families and friends and lasting benefits for the community. We will begin a process of engagement after the summer holiday period, to ensure that as many local people as possible can take part and share their views as the regeneration programme moves forward.'
