Flower Circles and Watercolours, Lanchester Road Hospital, Durham
I was commissioned as a Lead Artist to develop designs for the front glazing of the main entrance. Circular floral designs were applied to the Atrium glazing using a combination of diachroic glass and silk screen and the design was carried on through the reception foyer using vinyl manifestations applied to the walls.
I wanted to bring a ‘hand-made’ feel to the atmosphere in the hospital so I painted watercolours for the way-finding and ward entrance signage using inspiration from the mood-boards created during early staff and user workshops.
The artworks I have created have made the scale and structure of the building more ’human’ and friendly, making the experience of visiting this hospital extraordinary and unique.
