Product:  GUSTAFS Panel System® in Oak with plain and SM8 perforations.

Architect: BDP 

Contractor: Carillion

Installer: Houston Cox

Project: Southmead Hospital, Bristol


LSA are very proud to have supplied over 2 000 m2 of GUSTAFS Panel System® to this stunning new hospital for Bristol built by Carillion. The hospital is due to open in early 2014.


Chris Green, Architect Director at BDP takes up the story:


“The stair and lift cores centred in each of the colour themed atria spaces are key wayfinding points on a visitors’ journey to the wards and we wanted these elements to have the feeling of bespoke pieces of high quality crafted furniture, bringing the tactility and visual warmth of a timber against the contrasting glazed and coloured elements elsewhere.


The acoustic requirements and characteristics of the atria spaces are complex and the timber shroud surrounding to the stair and lift cores formed an ideal centralised location to act as a primary absorber. The extensive range of GUSTAFS panel perforation patterns, veneer finishes and jointing options enabled us to develop a precise and calming aesthetic to the high performance absorbing and panelised skin, enhanced by the bespoke curved corner elements.


We are extremely pleased with the final appearance of the GUSTAFS Panel System®  which has helped deliver a stunning focal point to each of these primary public spaces within the new hospital.”
