Portland Hospital – Paediatrics

Portland Hospital – Paediatrics

Art Contact was keen to continue the theme of ‘children and families at play’ from previous areas of the hospital and so collaborated with a digital artist to produce vibrant, eye-catching acrylic panels which depicted children playing in a park environment. With London landmarks contextualizing the images, Art Contact was keen to portray a positivity in subject matter whilst also celebrating the location of the hospital, within iconic buildings across our capital.


The Where’s Wally wallpaper, which had been so popular in a previous ward, has also been adapted to work on panels, again to encourage continuity between wards. Art Contact was keen to create a familiar environment for returning patients and visitors and the Where’s Wally style images have become a focal point of the hospital interior.

Through all stages of development, Art Contact worked closely with the Portland Hospital clinical team in choosing the perfect images for all to enjoy.
