Mater Hospital, Newcastle
The Mater in Newcastle is a 187 bed facility and is a major centre for oncology, haematology, clinical toxicology and research. The hospital features long corridors situated within single to two level buildings.
The objective of the brief was to provide self navigating guidance around the hospital and its site. Minale Tattersfield established a visual language comprising arrows, written information and distinctive images to provide additional cues.
The images provide a reference for each department and service from the entry to the destination. With the introduction of images it is intended that visitors can be guided on a functional as well as an emotional level.
