Hopeful Places

Hopeful places offer sanctuary and respite from the turmoil and trauma of difficult life experiences, such as being in hospital or living with a life-long condition, and can help staff, patients, carers alike.

Hopeful hospitals: Jenny collaborated with research led by Prof Hilary Dalke, Kingston University, for the National Health Service (NHS) exploring the effects of lighting and interior design on patient and staff wellbeing resulting in a design guide for healthcare settings called Lighting and Colour for Hospital Design

Research by Jenny at the Scottish award winning Maggie’s Cancer Centre at Gartnavel, Glasgow has showed the importance of good design to patients, staff and volunteers in managing the trauma of cancer.
