Hospice revamp meets the needs of patients


St Peter & James 1 St Peter & James2St Peter and St James Hospice & Continuing Care Centre benefits from an interior re-vamp as interior design company HomeSmiths partners with Shackletons to create a centre of wellbeing.

Based in Lewes, East Sussex, the out-dated hospice provides palliative care and required a scheme of works that would meet the needs of both existing patients and those who might use the Centre in the future.

Through focus groups with Hospice employees, and patients, design proposals and mood boards were developed and turned into reality as Shackletons provided cosy sofas, armchairs, formal dining furniture and occasional furniture that would reflect the very tranquil and gentle nature of the facility.

Jacqui Smith, Director at HomeSmiths says: “Developing a design scheme everyone would be happy with was a challenge; but due to our previous working relationship with Shackletons we knew they would understand the complexities and provide us with a considered solution that would meet the brief perfectly.”

Shackletons have been in the business of creating comfort for over 50 years and are the UK’s leading design and manufacturer of specialist contract furniture for the healthcare sector.
