Scheme: Institute of Transplantation
Practice: Ryder Architecture
Client: Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Photographer: Kristen McCluskie

This is a unique building type, the first in the UK to combine an organ transplant facility with teaching. It is a functional, fit-for-purpose building, but the architects have challenged some of the rules for hospital interior design that can make for bland and unfriendly spaces.

Externally they have responded to the demand of the brief for a material palette of brick and pre-patinated copper to match the adjacent buildings with well-proportioned and considered elevations that have interest and respect their orientations.
