Bligh Voller Nield designs for the kids.
April 20th, 2008
A colourful new wall graces the waiting area of the Queensland Paediatric Cardiac Services of Mater Hospital.
As the area was mainly for kids, Bligh Voller Nield decided to get some feedback from the kids themselves on what they think is fun. “Often, things designed for kids are prescriptive, following what adults think that kids will like rather than what kids actually want,” says designer Sam Wightley.
The wall, which BVN dubbed the ‘InteractiveWall’, caters for a huge age range, from babies at one end with embedded toys through to TVs and gameboys for older kids up to 17. The wall was custom-designed and built by Comax Australia.
