Claudia Bloom

Claudia is a director of Avanti Architects. Having cut her teeth on transformative design with the innovative ACAD project at Central Middlesex Hospital, and having delivered Avanti’s first health PFI at Gloucester, she was made director with overall responsibility for healthcare in 2002.

Her deep understanding of healthcare design enables her to devise elegant building concepts that marry high-quality architecture with organisational clarity and people-focused care – abilities that have led to her being acknowledged as an industry leader. Claudia is on the executive committee of Architects for Health, which helps her indulge another great passion – foreign travel. She has visited hospitals in more than 20 countries over the past 10 years across Asia, the Americas, Europe and Scandinavia.
