Adult Acute Mental Health Impatient Unit - Canberra Hospital
Workspace was commissioned to supply approximately 700 pieces of loose furniture for the Adult Acute Mental Health Impatient Unit Canberra Hospital. The facility design required manufacture and installation of a large amount of standard and customised commercial furniture products. Workspace manufactured lounges, ottomans, task chairs, meeting table, breakout seating, dining tables, floor mats, children’s table and chairs, and custom bean bags. These furniture pieces were placed in the low and high dependency wards, creative therapy rooms, reception and common rooms as well as staff only areas.
The project incorporated a variety of melamine and veneer finishes, bright colours and fabrics contrasting with neutral tones. Specialised children’s areas bring larger areas of colour and alternative materials to the project.
Workspace collaborated with the architect, builder and end user to achieve requirements for a staged installation program.
