Fair Havens Hospice
The new Fair Havens Hospice is LSI Architects’ third completed Hospice building project.
Currently under construction on a brownfield site in Prittlewell, Southend, the building includes the whole range of services in the modern environment for In-Patient care, Day Care, Community care, Bereavement and Supportive care as well as ensuring the administrative functions are able to support the Charity’s work over the foreseeable future. The Hospice will also include associated offices to accommodate the Head Office and administrative functions.
The new Hospice building is environmentally friendly, with sustainable materials used in its construction wherever possible. It is to be designed in a non clinical way and to be a welcoming place, encouraging normality and social interaction as much as possible and which takes into consideration the needs of people with disabilities. The desire is that the ambience created will be one of a relaxing and healing environment with innovative and artistic interpretation of light and colour throughout, with good external landscaping in keeping with the ethos of supportive care and the immediate locality.
