Imperial Trust

KLC were delighted to run a project with Karen Howes's charity Rest Nest to design staff rest areas for Charing Cross and Hammersmith Imperial Trust Hospitals as it fitted so well with our community focus and KLC's Design Changes Lives Foundation.

KLC students were tasked by the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust to design integrated staff breakout areas into the existing open plan cafeteria spaces at both the Charing Cross and Hammersmith hospital sites.

Both sites currently operate these as public spaces however there is an idea to re-focus the care provision for staff to provide a sanctuary for all hospital workers to withdraw to during breaks, away from the general public and their working environments, in order to re-energise.

As part of their course group project, KLC students were tasked to create the concepts designs shown below.
