ROLL OF HONOUR St Ebbas, Epsom - Housing Design Awards 2009
Role: Masterplanning Architecture and Landscape Architecture
St Ebbas and West Park Hospitals are two of three sites in the Epsom Hospitals Cluster competition by HCA and its joint venture partner Crest Nicholson.
The redevelopment of the former psychiatric hospitals provide 322 homes at St Ebbas and 365 homes at West Park. With high environmental standards, 20% of energy will be generated from onsite renewable sources.
At St Ebbas, the Grade II Victorian water tower and administration building have been sympathetically restored and converted to provide a historic reference to the development. The new-build houses and apartment buildings are contemporary, responding to the high aspirations of the English Partnerships Development Brief and Quality and Price Standards.
West Park Hospital site is designated a Conservation Area and the distinctive water tower granted Grade II listed status. The new houses and apartments will be traditional in character responding to the Edwardian character of the retained buildings.
