Art meets architecture

Golden Gift Appeal makes a difference in new ward block.

Nestled between the Bristol Heart Institute, the BHOC and the Queen's Buiding, the new ward block is at the heart of the redevelopment of Bristol's city centre hospitals. The newest part of the Bristol Royal Infirmary is a shining example of when architecture meets art. The buildings aesthetic mirrors the high quality of care patients will recieve within it. 

The large, open atrium area in the centre of the building contains a Golden Gift Appeal funded art installation from internationally acclaimed design company, Studioweave. 'Terrell' was inspired by the area's historical links to the rope industry. It not only  provides a visual focal point for the space, it also acts as an acoustic baffle, helping to prevent unwanted echoes, while still allowing natural light to enter the building.Sound sculpture 3Sound sculpture 2

With wide, light corridors and a sense of space throughout, the design of the new ward block is intended to be welcoming for patients, staff and visitors.
