Altro revisited Hillingdon Hospital, London, to see the lasting impact of products used to create homely environments in several departments.
Architect and healthcare specialist interior designer Georgia Burt of GBS Health worked closely with the hospital, lead designers Oxford Architects and with Altro on the project with the aim to create a healing environment that would focus on patient wellbeing.
Altro SerenadeTM acoustic smooth flooring was used, with large nature scenes reproduced on Altro Whiterock Digiclad™ to create a patient-centred biophilic design, to bring the outside in. Altro Serenade is ideal for spaces where comfort underfoot and impact sound reduction are paramount for patients. It is 3.9mm thick and has 19dB impact sound reduction.
Along the walls of the gym is an image of a bluebell wood, in Altro Whiterock Digiclad. In the Stroke unit bed bays, a wildflower meadow runs along the entire wall above the bedheads, using Altro’s Whiterock hygienic wall sheets range, Altro Whiterock Digiclad, Altro Whiterock Chameleon™ and Altro Whiterock Satins™.
Altro Wood™ Safety, Altro Suprema™ and Altro Aquarius™ safety floors were also essential in the Hillingdon Hospital project.
