After working successfully on previous projects including the refurbishment of the Intensive Care Unit ward at Northwick Park Hospital, LNWH NHS Trust further appointed ACA to design the refurbishment for the Vascular Unit Health Centre at Northwick Park. The Vascular Unit offers the full range of procedures needed for up-to-date treatment of vascular disease (conditions affecting the circulatory system).
ACA worked closely with clinically-oriented, multi-professional team members to develop the design up to construction package. The driving influence of the design was to create a healing environment. The unit will create an environment where the service will be individualised to focus on what can be done, rather than on what can no longer be done.
The proposed layout on a single level focused on making the facilities simple to navigate, offering staff and patients ease of orientation.
To provide a healing environment, the interior designed focused on warm colours providing a welcoming and positive effect on people using the ward.
Each room is flooded with natural light enhancing the reassuring aesthetics associated with each space.
