Gt Ormond Street Hospital Main Reception

Great Ormond Street Hospital

The Scope

 

Contractor Mansell (Balfour Beatty) engaged the services of Receptek in one of the most challenging but exciting projects for the Great Ormond Street Hospital main reception. However this is no ordinary reception desk. It is in fact 12 meters long and needed to incorporate 3 separate reception areas, a security shutter, glazed screens, column encasements and lit feature panels. Oh and it had to look like a boat!

Designers Comment

 

“From the start I became driven by the desire to really do something special for all these children that attend GOSH. You cannot attend this hospital without being impressed by the total commitment to care. Irrespective of race, colour, status or religion and despite the critical nature of what it is being faced by many children and parents, there is a palpable atmosphere of optimism that has an impact on one’s spirit. I believe that what we as a team – the contractor, the client, the architect and Receptek – have achieved creates an environment that captures this optimism.”

Receptek proposed the use of recycled glass for the worktops on the main reception desk. The net result is stunning with what appears and feels like stone yet without the typical joining issues associated with stone. It was a real challenge to maintain the overall design intent and balance the budget. But we did it.
