Congratulations to Anna Freud Centre

Winners of two major awards at the Building Better Healthcare Awards

5th November 2019

Many congratulations to Anna Freud Centre on winning two major awards at the Building Better Healthcare Awards: The Grand Prix Design Award, which celebrates the best healthcare development of the year, as well as joint winner in the Best Healthcare Development (UK) category.

Building on 60 years’ experience, the Anna Freud Centre’s new building at King’s Cross brings together leading neuroscientists and practitioners in mental health, social care and education who work together with children and young people to transform mental health for them and their families. At the heart of the new centre is the ground-breaking Pears Family School. Describing the design of the new building as “a clever solution”, the judging panel said: “Working within a challenging urban site, and a complex brief, the architects delivered a homely, light-filled environment that supports children dealing with mental health problems and who are excluded from the school system.”
