Mowat Labs


ArtCare’s Penny Calvert supported the Mowat Labs, at King’s College Hospital, with creating a bright, modern interior for their new International Learning Hub. The design brief was clear-cut – the environment needed to reflect the excellence, expertise and world leading research that has developed there over decades, and create a sense of flow between the paediatric ward, labs and the new learning hub, so highlighting the team’s “bench-to-bedside” approach to research work. The finished design seamlessly blends printed Altro Digiclad™ wall panels with bespoke artworks, signage and a matching colour scheme to create a vibrant and distinctive environment.

*Professor Alex Mowat was the UK’s first paediatric Hepatologist.

Penny said, “The abstract designs were based on the medical images used in the diagnosis and assessment of liver disease in children, which the Labs specialise in. Other panels incorporate the Mowat logo, in recognition of the Labs founder* and there is also a timeline marking key developments in the history of Paediatric liver research and the birth of the Mowat Labs.”
