Redesign brings Wolfson Ward into the light
Prior to redesign, Wolfson Ward was a very dark and insular environment within the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability (RHN). IBI Group’s architects and designers helped transform the space into an enriching environment for patients and staff by improving circulation between personal and shared areas.
Primarily treating people affected by Huntington’s disease, the staff at RHN provide daily living and mobility assistance to their patients. The facility’s revised layout provides better access for patients, staff and visitors, improving observation with a new entrance and reception area.
Our designers implemented a concept that blurs the boundaries of inside and outside, as well as the change of seasons, helping patients and visitors make connections with the past and the present and feel a greater sense of belonging. The concept alleviates the clinical surroundings by creating a homelier atmosphere which aims to de-stress and promote wellbeing. Its updated interiors pay special attention to care with new finishes, lighting and enhanced therapy spaces.
