Redefining hospital environments to appeal to younger patients.
Birmingham Children’s Hospital
The brief was to create a fun, engaging, warm and family friendly outpatients area and garden to provide a calm and inviting hospital space for families.
The challenge was to create a warm and inviting medical space in one of the UK’s largest children’s hospital on a limited budget without comprising on quality or style with functionality and cleanliness at the heart of the design.
Avoiding white, cold and clinical features, we created bold and colourful areas within the outpatients ward to appeal to young families using modern furnishings and bright hand crafted signage. The space not only appeals to families, but was designed with longevity, maintenance and costs in mind.
The external sensory garden was also designed with families in mind, to provide a place to escape the hospital environment and take a breath of fresh air in a calm, serene and modern garden.
