This took the form of the blue and green colourways, for example where the large-scale placemaking graphics help to intuitively indicate levels of the hospital, i.e., the blue feather floor.
While patient and visitor signage took on these colours, staff and back-of-house signage became a charcoal colour. This assisted patients in finding their destination through all signage non-relevant to them being a more neutral colour.
"When we started working on this project many solutions were not resonating with us, so one weekend we went out to Ku Ring Gai Chase National Park and Narabeen Beach - both in the area surrounding the hospital, to gather inspiration. We noticed the beautiful, diverse flora and started to collect artifacts, after which we quickly realised that what we had was a really authentic representation of the area. We employed Tim Jones to photograph over 50 of the collected specimens and in doing so captured the true spirit and a strong unique sense of the place, as well as a huge collection of design assets".
