Fisher House (QE Hospital)
Fisher House provides a “home away from home” for military patients and their families whilst receiving treatment at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.
Fisher House, the first of its kind in the UK, provides 18 en-suite bedrooms with shared communal facilities, a private garden and guest parking within the campus of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. The development, undertaken for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity and supported by the Fisher House Foundation and Help for Heroes, provides a comfortable environment where the families of injured troops can stay whilst visiting their loved ones, offering a home away from home where guests can share their experiences and unwind in a supportive, non-clinical environment.
Fisher house was officially opened by Prince Charles, the patron of the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine at the hospital, in June 2013 and has recently celebrated its 10th anniversary.
The approachability of Adam, David, and their colleagues was very helpful for us. It was useful to have their take on our ideas-validating them or where they felt necessary challenging them. This was done in a constructive way.
My experience of Hickman and Smith could not have been better. The result of their effort is just terrific.
Outstanding service. Professional and innovative. Listened to our wishes. Great results. David and Adam provided a very professional service throughout our project.
They were innovative in their approach and suggested a range of design and layout options that my wife and I had not even realised would be possible.
We used Hickman & Smith for our project. They came up with a number of ideas to create the space and feel we were after. David Gladstone was unfailingly patient. Fees were fair and transparent.
No hesitation in recommending to others.
My go to architects for any project of any size.
Brilliant from day one to completion.
Hickman and Smith have creatively designed us a comfortable 3 bedroom home including very usable rooms with storage upstairs where we only expected a loft space.
The end result is a very special ‘forever’ home in a lovely rural setting.
