The redesign of the psychiatry department is intended to quell the emerging fears of the patients and their families, and demonstrate that they are held in high esteem. Lots of light, vibrant colours and different materials convey a welcoming and homely atmosphere.
A colour concept with vibrant, playful colours and the use of natural materials was of utmost importance.
The furniture in the reception area is organic, upholstered and decorated with luminous and refreshing colours. Appropriately, the curtain material in the reception area and the communal rooms conveys freshness.
The strict length of the corridor is broken up by coloured strips. In the patient rooms and offices, a semi-transparent curtain offers protection from prying eyes, whereby light still penetrates the room.
