In general, hospitals are sterile and unwelcoming places, only visited if you or a relative are seriously ill. Parking your car and walking up to the hospital entrance can be a stressful experience. Forward thinking hospitals such as in Glasgow, Liverpool and London understand this fact and have started to improve the hospital interior to welcome the visitors. The success of this project has therefore been extended to enhancing the entrance area, making them less foreboding and more attractive.
We were asked to supply a lighting control solution to illuminate the outside of the hospital entrances and to use different lighting combinations to set a more relaxing mood for hospital visitors.
Different lighting combinations suit different times of year and the hospital has been rather pleased with the unusual pastel combinations that this project delivered.
