Macmillan Renton Unit - Hereford

Overview

Macmillan Cancer Support in partnership with Wye Valley NHS Trust commissioned us to design the external environment for the new Macmillan Renton Unit at Hereford County Hospital.

The scheme utilised the design principles established by Fira for the Macmillan Landscape Design Guide, which promotes the value of providing quality external spaces in modern, holistic cancer care facilities to support those affected by the disease. The project was developed in close consultation with patient representatives, key staff members, donors and a public art group to ensure that art was an integral part of the internal and external fabric of the design.
