Interior Design Excellence Awards - Shortlisted 2017 - Institutional Design

Central to the new 12 bed ICU design is a central flight deck space with a lofty cathedral ceiling. High-level glazing brings an abundance of natural light into the ward throughout the day and assists in the minimisation of intensive care psychosis. In addition, every bed receives access to sunlight and views outside to aid in patient comfort, connection and recovery.

It’s very lucky that every room has external views, as well as the cathedral ceilings. I like the people, the environment and the patients, everyone knows each other and it still has that real homely feel. It’s just a nice place to come to work.
