Large format wall murals, featuring custom designed ‘Friendly Forest’ illustrations were created and installed in the children’s wards at St Georges Hospital to create a more vibrant environment for the young patients.
The corridor at the children’s emergency department at St George’s Hospital is very long and was under-utilised. The brief for the project team was to present the corridor as a normal space that was safe and inviting for children.
A ‘Friendly Forest’ frieze by London-based artist Donna Wilson was the theme for this project, achieved using precision cut self-adhesive vinyl applied to the corridor walls of the children's emergency department.
Experience from a previous commission awarded to New Vision dictated that the wall artwork should be mounted using coloured vinyl, a medium already approved for cleaning, infection control and building maintenance.
The corridor was transformed into a very different space, meaning that children and their families were distracted from the anxieties of being in hospital and had lots of visual stimulation.
