Synopsis

Red Kite View – A New CAMHS Unit for West Yorkshire realised through a pandemic.

Red Kite View is a new in-patient CAMHS unit for West Yorkshire, nestled into little woodland in Leeds for Leeds York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

Challenges faced during the project was progressing through COVID, not least including the trust embarking on an extension to the project as a pandemic response during construction.

The project uses elements of biophilic design, with the form of the building meandering through the wooden landscape.

Gilling Dod Architects designed the big elements of the building architecture and the smaller details such as door handles and maps for service user welcome packs.
