The St Thomas' scheme by Hopkins
A team featuring Hopkins has won a £21 million scheme to re-clad the East Wing of St Thomas’ Hospital in central London.
The practice has teamed up with ISG, the builder it is working with on the 2012 Olympic velodrome, to transform the 13-storey hospital building opposite the Houses of Parliament for Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.
The win means the practice renews its association with the hospital where it built the Stirling Prize-shortlisted Evelina Children’s Hospital. It is a coup for the firm after it lost out to Rogers Stirk Harbour to design a new cancer centre at Guy’s Hospital next to London Bridge.
Hopkins’ design is a single skin of glass with a timber mullion and stainless steel external pressure cap which creates a thermal buffer zone.
It beat competing entries from AHMM, David Morley Architects, Denton Corker Marshall, Grimshaw and Penoyre & Prasad.
