Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Advanced Paediatric Care Pavilion

Perkins + Will have employed evidence based design techniques to meet the heeling needs of the children at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Advanced Paediatric Care Pavilion. The building is divided into three distinct zones- family, patient and caregiver though all three flow together seamlessly. ‘Wonder Rooms’ throughout the hospital encourage children to take their minds away from their illness or injury allowing them to interact with tactile textured surfaces and other playful objects for a multi-sensory experience.

Windows of opportunity

Project of the Year!

calming wall graphics for mental health unit

We are delighted that Ancora House has been named ‘Project of the Year’ and ‘Service User Engagement of the Year’ at the Design in Mental Health Conference! We worked closely with Villicare to deliver a safe environment that retains an informal feel where young people can relax and staff are able to provide the best support. A thoroughly rewarding project to have been a part of!

Tactile Wayfinding

Hazelwood School has been designed for dual sensory impaired children aged 2 to 18. Alan Dunlop Architects have done a sterling job creating a school that supports the needs of the children and the aspirations of the parents. The school has been designed to be a place of safety and ambition that frees the teacher and inspires the child.

Bright colours and bold prints for children’s ward

Designer Morag Myerscough used bright colours and bold prints to create an uplifting environment for Sheffield Children’s Hospital. With an objective to make the wards feel more comfortable and less clinical, Myerscough scanned wood grain Formica laminates, digitally adding pattern and colour.  Medical equipment has been stored behind Formica panels to give the space a more domestic feel.

Why is inclusive design so important?

Low back seating provides a clear line of sight for reception staffAn inclusive approach to design provides new challenges and opportunities to use creativity and lateral thinking to address the true breadth of human diversity.

Design in healthcare environments is evolving. With bodies like The King’s Fund supporting considerable research into service redesign it has become clear that the health needs of our population are changing, and fast. Outdated buildings, interiors and services can prove detrimental to patient and staff well being, which in turn affects outcomes, morale and efficiency.Read More
