Adelaide Women’s and Children’s Hospital

Design: GHDWoodhead, Adelaide
Location: Adelaide, Australia
Staron Application: Wall cladding

Healing begins with the patient’s environment. Staron® offers a warm, soft and soothing feel to the skin while delivering a hygienic finish for a healthier environment, perfect for dental surgeries, hospitals, and aged care facilities. When GHD Woodhead was considering surfaces to clad on the walls of the nurse’s stations and entries in the Starlight Express Room, they searched for a material that lends itself to hospital environments. The material had to be visually stimulating while still meeting the stringent hospital standards in relation to cleaning and hygiene. This area of the hospital is a welcome retreat for seriously ill children, teenagers, and their families, giving them an environment away from the rigours of hospital life. Materials selected had to adhere to the concept of an internal garden that aims at bringing the outdoor environment indoors to create a hub of fun and distraction. Staron provides a warm and inviting surface to touch, while the soft curves create an organic feel.
