It was great to attend the opening of the 1950s reminiscence day room we recently designed for Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital. The project was part of the Hospital Arts Project, which provides positive health care settings and environments for patients. These important projects are funded by grants, charitable donations and various fundraising activities.
Staff and patients were thrilled with the outcome, and this will be a welcome addition to the Holt Ward. Our aim was to create and design a calm and welcoming environment for patients to sit, relax, socialize and reminisce. With it’s mix of bespoke printed wallpaper coupled with original and new items for the room we hope these help spark memories and conversations. Among other items we sourced were original books from the 1950s, photos of local interest from the era, games and even a retro TV (with hidden dvd player showing footage from the 1950s!).
It was great to see the room finally being used after months of designing and planning. We hope the patients enjoy using it as much as we enjoyed designing it.
