Project Description

Place of Safety

Leicester

The Place of Safety is where persons detained under the mental health acts are taken for emergency clinical assessment.

In addition to the obvious need for a high level of security and accessibility, the design provides the building with its own identity; both physically and visually separate from the surrounding Bradgate Unit.

The glazed access corridor introduces light into the middle of the building and the familiar domestic scale offers a supportive environment.
