Steam & Boiler Plant - Royal Derwent Hospital
Whilst the Royal Derwent Hospital closed down in 2000, the large boiler block designed in the 1950s still stands, dominating with it's high brick facade and towering chimney stack. On the side of the building there is a sign (that now looks quite old itself) informing people that the building is for sale. I would be interested to know how this building could be adaptively reused? A highrise 1950s style apartment conversion perhaps?
