P+HS Architects is an award winning practice, highly experienced in healthcare design. We work collaboratively across all healthcare sectors, focussing on the delivery of facilities that improve healthcare in terms of quality, experience, efficiency, sustainability and value.


We are a major national Architectural Practice with over 30 years' experience of healthcare projects covering acute, mental health, community and primary care environments. P+HS provide specialist strategic advice and undertake large and small-scale new build projects as well as renewing facilities through extension and refurbishment in live healthcare environments.

Sustainability is central to both the way in which we operate and the designs we deliver. We were the first, and still the only Practice to have achieved BREEAM Outstanding for a UK healthcare building with Houghton Primary Care Centre and we continue to provide our clients with flexible solutions capable of responding to changes in use or need for the future.

Successful projects are about people; those who commission, conceive, use, design, and construct them. The start of our design process begins with intelligent listening and a positive environment for creative thinking. This coupled with our knowledge and experience allows us to work collaboratively with clients and colleagues to deliver buildings that delight, that function well and provide high long term value. Our open, team approach aims to give all stakeholders a voice in the design process, producing buildings that function efficiently on all levels, offer highly therapeutic facilities and represent the best value for our clients. Above all we are endlessly passionate about what we do.
