Eating Disorders Unit


NAVIGO provides an eating disorder service through multi-disciplinary and comprehensive provision to individuals suffering from complex eating disorders that require the assistance and support of a specialist service.

​The proposal is for a new build facility on the Diana Princess of Wales Hospital site. The building provide 10 purpose built bedrooms for adults over the age of 18. A further 8 bedrooms are proposed for clients under the age of 18; these will be more flexible, enabling treatment of mental health as necessary.

​The building will provide cooking and dining facilities, therapy rooms as well as provision for the medical care required by the clients to aid treatment. A key requirement of the building is that it should have a ‘homely’ feel; The building is accessed via an enclosed courtyard and it’s appearance is consciously distinct from the neighbouring hospital buildings; whilst sharing the site it is important that the unit is not perceived to be part of the hospital.

​The buildings are arranged in an ‘L-shape’ configuration in response to site constraints. The building is made up of a series of simple ’barn-like’ structures with narrow plans and steeply pitched aluminium roofs, giving a domestic appearance.
