Chelsea & Westminster hospital is located on a tight urban site on Fulham Road, London. Like all hospitals, the demand on space and facilities is constantly evolving and moving with current clinical demand.
Following a history of work at the hospital, we were asked to produce a design for a new Patient Transport Lounge. The space allows patients who have been discharged to wait in a comfortable environment while until medical transport arrives to take them home. The area uses strong floor designs and warm, colourful timber panelling around the space to mark key areas within the room.
A collaboration with the Hospital Arts team also helped to reduce the 'clinical' feel of the space and create a relaxing environment for patients and staff.
