Circle Bath is a new privately funded hospital that puts patients at the centre of an innovative approach to healthcare. There is a wealth of evidence to suggest that a well-designed hospital environment can reduce recovery times and contribute to better outcomes for patients, while providing a more attractive workplace for medical staff. Throughout the building, there is an emphasis on natural light and views. Balconies line the building’s northern and southern edges, oriented to maximise views across the surrounding rolling countryside. Sympathetic landscaping further emphasises the therapeutic natural environment – an overall approach very different from more familiar hospital surroundings.
