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.

Inner city Melbourne has many beautiful locales and highly sought after suburbs in which people want to live, but few are so pretty as the beachside suburb of Elwood. An established suburb, Elwood has become a hub for those who appreciate parklands and the beach while still wanting to immerse themselves in the social interaction to be found at nearby cafes, restaurants and speciality shops. And the Elwood House is the perfect example of this suburb’s popularity.
‘Community’ was the dominant theme at the INDE.Awards 2018 Gala in Singapore. It was a celebration of outstanding design, architecture, material and culture as well as an opportunity to knit together a stronger fabric for our regional industry.
