Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice

Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice has been completed!

Stonescreen has reached the goal providing Welsh slate Aerolite© panels and collaborating with Ryder Architecture Studio on this amazing project. The brand new £21m Prince and Princess of Wales palliative care hospice has opened in Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park.

“Few building materials are as capable of being used in a variety of applications as natural slate. Externally, the material can be used for roofing, cladding, paving, cills and copings, walling and landscaping. Internally, it can be employed as wall and floor tiles, worktops, fire surrounds and hearths. The use of Welsh Slate in three areas of the new  Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice in Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park, is the latest example of how the material lends itself to an unparalleled range of exterior and interior functions.” Architecture Today
