Bringing local memories indoors

We introduced a series of illustrations by David Jones into a new care unit for people with early, mid, and late-stage dementia. The scheme features a mix of imagery, drawn from local culture, history and traditions.

All of the drawings have been reproduced on wooden surfaces, bringing non-clinical materials into the environment.

Some illustrations are manifested on internal windows.

A series of portraits of local professions occupy wooden fins located in the waiting area.
