Forensic mental healthcare facilities must balance the needs of a therapeutic care environment within a secure setting. Ireland’s national forensic mental hospital was the first such facility in the world when it opened in 1850, but the Victorian building is no longer suitable for the delivery of 21st century models of mental healthcare.

STW in association with Medical Architecture were commissioned to design a new National Forensic Mental Hospital on a beautiful landscaped site 20 km north of Dublin city, with the challenge to achieve a design which maximises light, space and aesthetic quality while complying with onerous security requirements.
