Bid with Penoyre & Prasad and White Arkitekter pips RSHP, Bennetts, Hopkins and others for £200m facility

An Aecom-led team featuring Penoyre & Prasad and White Arkitekter has been picked to design a new central London base for Moorfields Eye Hospital in a project estimated to be worth £200-£250m.

The winners pipped shortlisted bid teams led by RHSP, Hopkins Architects, Bennetts Associates and Ryder Architecture in the RIBA competition, run on behalf of Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, the UCL Institute of Opthalmology and Moorfields Eye Charity.

Expected to be open by 2026, the new facility – named Oriel – will relocate all services from the existing Moorfields Eye Hospital on City Road to a 45,000sq m joint facility at the St Pancras Hospital site some two miles away.
