The Welland Centre is a purpose built mental health inpatient centre that covers the population of Kettering, Corby, Wellingborough, Rushden and surrounding towns and villages.
Fleet architects specified BetweenGlassBlinds for the project. Fleet Architects of London were looking for a solution specifically for seclusion spaces that were anti-ligature, anti-tamper and generally reduced the ability for self-harm. BetweenGlassBlinds ticked all of those boxes.
