About the project

NDYLIGHT was involved in the conceptual design of the lighting throughout the project as part of the bid phase, and then played a key part in the design and development of that concept throughout all the public and patient areas of the hospital, included the inpatient unit rooms and corridor spaces, operating theatres and consultation suites.

NDYLIGHT then worked through the key public front of house areas to provide a lighting language and identity to the project linking the lighting to the architectural forms and providing smaller scale luminous forms to bring otherwise large physical spaces down to a more childlike level.

NDYLIGHT also worked to develop the external lighting solutions to meet with both the Green Star requirements of the building, the security camera conditions and the general aesthetic intent of the landscape and architectural form.
