Silver Hill Hospital Flagship Building
When Silver Hill Hospital's "Main House" was demolished in 2006, only one exterior wall remained. Today, the newly designed building doubles as a visual icon and a multi-functional space, housing several of the hospital's central campus programs and the patient cafeteria and dining room.
Richard Turlington Architects began the project by carefully rebuilding the interior to reflect the house's original character, then adding new shed dormers to the roof area. This allowed the hospital to fully utilize the entire third floor. We also redesigned the second floor to house a unit devoted to treating eating disorders. Finally, we considered the grounds, reorganizing features to make the footpath more accessible and adding an exterior rear courtyard with teak chairs, tables, and chaises. These renovations came together beautifully and continue to improve patients' experiences during their time at Silver Hill Hospital.
