33 Queen Square

A project for the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, part of University College London Hospitals (UCLH) and the Institute of Neurology at 33 Queen Square, London, has won the Judges Special Award in the Best Hospital Design category at the recent Building Better Healthcare Awards amidst intense competition.

Designed by Devereux Architects, with the front addressing Queen Square by Allies and Morrison, the project was recognised by the judges for its importance in the urban context. In particular, it received special praise for the design of the elegant stone and glass façade to the square.

The project consists of a narrow infill building forming a physical link between the Queen Mary Wing of the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery and the recently refurbished Royal London Homeopathic Hospital also designed by Devereux Architects.

This Queen Square project was the first collaboration between Devereux Architects and Allies and Morrison. Together the practices have been appointed to design the new £41m clinical research facility for King’s College London (KCL) at Denmark Hill in Southeast London.
