Vinyl treatments create 'meadow forest' feel

23 May 2012

Artist-designed vinyl treatments can be a distinctive and cost effective way to enhance any new or existing environment. The key to using them well is to ensure that they harmonise with the interior furnishings and design schemes and that they are appropriate in the specific context in which they appear.

Marion Brandis’ recently installed commissions in the newly refurbished and extended Macmillan Haematology Outpatients Department at Northampton General Hospital are a striking example of how to get it right. Her work, applied to glazing and walls is based upon photographs and drawings of garden plants, enlarged to suggest an uplifting and natural ‘meadow forest’ feel within the building’s new waiting, treatment and counselling areas.
