St James Hospital, Portsmouth

Feilden+Mawson have been appointed for architecture and heritage services for the residential development at the St. James Hospital site, including conversion of the main building on the site, a former Victorian asylum dating back to 1878, Grade ll listed.

Red brick Victorian and Edwardian architecture comprise the central blocks and the exterior retains a high proportion of its original features, although little remains of the original interior detail and the interior layout has been much modified.

We are promoting an innovative approach to the hospital conversion, making use of existing wide circulation corridors and awkward spaces, taking full advantage of tall ceilings to enhance the overall feeling of space.

A listed building application is anticipated in 2018 for the St. James Hospital conversion.
