>Epworth Hospital, Richmond, Melbourne VIC
Gone are the days of pale green walls with a sterile design aesthetic, as a place of respite and healing, health care environments are looking to hotel interiors for inspiration. With a focus on hospitality as well as health care Victoria’s largest private hospital took a contemporary and creative approach in the $350 million dollar refurbishment.
Godfrey Hirst provided carpet for the recent redevelopment of the Epworth Hospital in Richmond including all of the rooms, corridors, reception areas and waiting areas in the Lee Wing. The custom design was produced using our exclusive Designer Jet technology to create the burgundy and white woven pattern on a charcoal base.
The design mimics the grey marble on corridor walls and reception areas, flanked by solid charcoal grey in the corridors to create clear thoroughfares. The rich burgundy tones complement the mahogany features while the dark charcoal contrasts against clean white walls.
Hospitals and health care are also enduring environments that need to balance community needs with functionality, safety and maintainability. Godfrey Hirst used 2m wide carpet with HealthBac™, the high performance carpet backing with an impervious moisture barrier and bio-contaminant control.
This stunning interior upgrade at the Epworth has achieved the balance between functionality and comfort. Creating a space of rest, relaxation and quality care, helps make a patient's experience a pleasant one.
