Two themes, one identity
In the atrium and across the women’s services, we placed elegant drawings of dogwood and cherry, inspired by what we saw in the gardens around the hospital.
In the children’s department, we suffused the space with images of ducklings, otters and egrets found in British waterways.
The two styles of art sit happily alongside each other, giving a common identity to the whole space whilst respecting the individuality of each clinical service. In the more social, public spaces, the flora and fauna depict joyful movement and characterization. In other areas requiring a calmer mood, the drawings are less busy, featuring fewer lines and less action.
