Linn Dara, 2013-15
Different materials are used to create a set of integrated designs based on trees and birds to connect the interior with nature and to create a calming and distracting artwork.
In the two exterior courtyards a series of coloured birds in porcelain are inset into the coloured render of the walls and fly from one group of trees to another creating a flow throughout the space. These are colour co-ordinated with the interior design palette on each side and are incorporated into the coloured render producing a safe flush finish.
Wallpaper and glass designs are based on the theme of trees ( units in this hospital are all named after trees) with soft colours, familiar motifs and unthreatening designs bringing a positive ambiance to the interiors.
