Calderdale Royal Hospital

“FG listened to our initial ideas and had a lot of design suggestions to help us make our initial rather vague plans a reality. The installation team were completely self-reliant and knew exactly what needed to be done and finished on schedule and we would fully endorse FG’s design and installation team.”

Brief

The Library and Knowledge Service at Calderdale and Huddersfield Foundation Trust needed a complete transformation to maximise the light and space available.

The space needed to incorporate three distinctive areas. A work space with new computer desking, a dedicated quiet study space including desks with modesty screens and quick charge points and relaxation zone with easy chairs, a sofa and soft furnishings.

Solution

The proposal FG Library & Learning created for Calderdale Royal Hospital not only met the hospitals expectations but exceeded them.

A sunny and vibrant yellow colour theme was chosen for the walls, Latitude shelving and furniture. This colour was then echoed in the meeting pod and mural to create a space that is light and bright with an up-lifting feel.

Repositioning of the counter allowed FG Library & Learning to create a spacious entrance area and the shelves and fixtures were positioned in such a way as to create the segmented areas which formed part of the design must haves.

The end results successfully created a relaxed and welcoming refuge for staff and students away from the busy ward environment.
