EHD Highly Commended Award
Our recent project in Truro with Macmillan Cancer Support and ADP Architecture involved the creation of a new cancer centre with art integrated with the interiors.
Working closely with staff, the design team and patients we carried out creative consultation workshops to develop a theme for the artwork and interiors which would be appealing to patients and would give the centre a strong identity.
The final result is both beautiful and therapeutic, a healing environment which supports wellbeing. The theme celebrated the local landscape and - particularly - the beautiful Cornish coastline.
With paintings by Kurt Jackson, a large scale mural by Chelsea Holter and furniture designed by artist/maker Scott Woyka, the theme runs throughout the building, creating moments of beauty and respite for patients.
We are delighted to announce that the project has been Highly Commended by the European Healthcare Design awards, announced on 13th June 2017.
We are also pleased to see that our clients North Bristol NHS Foundation Trust were awarded the coveted Healthcare Design (over 25000 sqm) prize for their Brunel Building, for which we created the Public Art Strategy and managed the programme, in partnership with Fresh Arts.
