Ulster Hospital Macmillan Unit

Belfast, Northern Ireland

The latest addition to the redevelopment programme at Ulster Hospital in Belfast is a state-of-the-art Macmillan Chemotherapy Unit for The South Eastern Trust and Macmillan Cancer Support. The Unit comprises a major refurbishment of an existing 1960s building to create a modern non-clinical space together with a new build rooftop extension that provides a relaxing, therapeutic environment for patients, visitors and staff.

Working closely with the Trust and Macmillan teams and the patient experience group we established clear objectives at the outset of the project that focused on providing a caring environment to deliver state of the art cancer services within stimulating surroundings that would enriches the lives of those affected by cancer.

The new roof extension sits comfortably with the existing building. The vertical emphasis and spacing of the façade mullions provide a homogenous curtain wall screen that unifies the new elevations in a complementary manner that will not detract or compete with the language of the older elements of the building.

The new Macmillan Chemotherapy Unit provides a striking new facility which significantly enhances the environment in which quality care is provided for people affected by cancer in the local community and is helping the Trust to regenerate its infrastructure across the Ulster Hospital site to transform patient care for the 21st century.
