King’s Col­lege Hospi­tal is to be a new spe­cialised fa­cil­ity fo­cus­ing on four cen­tres of ex­cel­lence: ob­stet­rics and gy­nae­col­ogy; pae­di­atrics; or­thopaedics; and en­docrinol­ogy (di­a­betes) and liver trans­plants. The first phase of the project, de­signed by Perkins+Will, will com­prise a to­tal floor area of 23,000 square me­tres or­gan­ised over eight floors, while phase two will be a hor­i­zon­tal ex­pan­sion of around 16,000 square me­tres. The main en­trance will fea­ture a pub­lic lobby com­plete with a three-storey atrium; sus­tain­able de­sign fea­tures in­clude self-shad­ing ex­te­rior faces and soar­ing canopies sur­round­ing the build­ing, along with shel­tered gar­dens. A roof gar­den will pro­vide ar­eas for re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and re­lax­ation.
