TRANSFORMATION: Three innovative garden spaces introduced at Amersham hospital

 Published on: 5th November 2022   |   By: Darius Morgan   |   Category: Uncategorized

A series of gardens at a hospital in Amersham were officially opened last month.

A trio of Chilterns-based garden designers contributed to the renovation of a different area within Amersham Hospital.

Sam Proctor designed a lush courtyard space for the Dermatology Ward that aims to create an immersive natural experience. Staff are invited to take a moment to step out of work mode into somewhere completely different, a world where large leaves mix with textural forms and bright pops of colour to create a sense of escapism.

A space at Chartridge Ward was created by Jen Donnelly to be used by both patients and staff. Jen added a sense of fun by adding a putting game, as well as bringing light, colour and texture to the courtyard through planting.

The third space was orchestrated by Catherine Gibbon, who introduced a refreshed planting scheme to the Ophthalmology Secret Garden with focus on colour, resilience, and evergreens for year-round structure.

A member of staff said: “It brings us happiness; we just open the door and look at the garden and we are so happy.”
