The Old City Hospital

Coventry

The former City hospital in Coventry was closed around a decade ago and large parts of the site were sold off for development. The remaining buildings, the former Victorian operating theatre and an Edwardian nurses home are both Grade 2 Listed.

MCa have developed a scheme to bring both back into reuse as a student hall of residence with the former operating theatre being used as a central resource and amenity building. The former nurses home will be carefully restored, adapted and extended to form around 300 bedrooms. In addition, significant new buildings will be added to the site and designed to suit the sensitive context.

The whole complex will provide a vibrant new development, effectively reusing notable existing buildings in the heart of the City.
