The Ronald McDonald House Glasgow provides accommodation for families from all across Scotland to stay close to their children whilst they are patients at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital. Threesixty were appointed to review the layout of their front of house accommodation and support facilities. Beyond this there is also a likely requirement for additional bedroom accommodation to cope with the increase of support they are providing to families.
The refurbishment of the entrance and reception space is an opportunity to create a warmer and more welcoming environment for families on arrival. In addition we have designed a more efficient circulation layout which has improved the amount of space available to accommodate the valuable support services.
Aesthetically, we have introduced a natural palette of materials, consciously staying away from institutional and corporate tones to help create a relaxing environment that has a more domestic feel for visiting families, whilst still meeting the needs for the functional requirements of the staff.
