geometrical coloured patterns guide visitors to their destination and lighten the mood of this sterile setting. each of the numerous locations has its own combination of pattern and colour to set it apart, then each visitor can identify “their” colour and pattern that will guide them through the hospital complex.
the ward reception areas are identified by large areas of characteristically coloured, patterned wallpaper, with identical designs on the counters and doors. this visual coding gives these areas their own distinct identity. the system is based on a highly flexible concept that can be easily and quickly modified.
