Townend Court - NHS learning disability unit
Architect: Gelder & Kitchen
Commissioned by the Humber NHS Foundation Trust, Townend Court provides state of the art facilities within a safe, secure landscaped environment. The scheme incorporates full anti-ligature techniques and a Seclusion Suite.
The design was influenced by the Trust’s desire to enhance behavioural treatment of patients, promoting staff to observe and assist patients effectively.
Lignacite’s AFM Roman Brick was chosen for use throughout the build by Kitchen & Gelder LLP. Two AFM finishes were used, Original Split Snowstorm and Original Snowstorm Polished.
