Colour has an important role to play in defining Hospital zone areas, creating floor plans or producing guide maps. Signage can be colour-coded to help visitors find end locations more easily. Whilst walls can be flooded with the colours specific to each zoned area.
If large areas need to be covered, a diluted softer tone will often be used. Or you might see a base colour applied across the hospital, drawing on neutral tones such as grey, cream or stone – with more saturated colours used to highlight specific key areas. Employ colour in bands, blocks or stripes and you not only create a striking design feature, but a clear, user friendly way-finding solution.
