Following the successful completion of the Lourdes Ward refurbishment project in 2019, Fatkin were re-appointed as lead designers for the proposed works to St Michael’s Ward at St Joseph’s Hospice in May 2022.

Whilst the basis of the brief remained the same, a comprehensive refurbishment and alterations to a hospice ward to provide improvements to patient and staff accommodation, the new Senior Management Team focused on its long term estate and outreach requirements whilst addressing the influence that Covid has had on palliative care services.

As with Lourdes Ward, Fatkin developed concept layouts and design strategies in close coordination with the staff and patient liaison teams. This included challenging existing ways of working and the processes behind them, whilst producing detailed tender and construction packages of information.

St Michael’s Ward will be a reflection of Hackney, the vibrant local community, and the Borough’s place as part of the Inner London district.
