A Cornish interior design studio has just completed a project for the NHS in London.

Penryn-based Hart Miller Design was tasked with delivering a staff wellbeing hub at St George’s Hospital.

The design addressed functional aspects of the space ensuring every material was durable and easy to clean, but never clinical. Instead, co-founder and design director, Anna Hart, said there is a focus on “human interaction, tactile materials and biophilia”.

“With a focus on the individual experience, wellbeing and productivity – we have set out to create a radically different experience of a healthcare environment,” she said.

Senior designer Stuart Watt added: “Wellbeing of staff within the NHS has always been important but perhaps never so high up on the agenda.

“This space will enable critical moments of respite to a highly-valued workforce.”
