In 2007 Triad Architects were commissioned by the Nairobi Hospital to refurbish the existing Cathetherisation Laboratory, which Triad had designed some ten years previously.
The original project was constructed to receive donated catheterisation equipment from the USA and was also designed to accommodate the CSSD on the second fl oor of the building.
The facility includes a refurbished theatre adjacent to a control room, staff changing facilities, 2-bed recovery area for patients as well as office space for the Centre’s staff. The consultancy included co-ordinating the electrical and electronic services and specialist installation of the equipment.
The theatre is painted a bright yellow with a contrasting grey floor using a self levelling epoxy screed. The use of the warm, inviting painted surfaces and mixed tone floors create peaceful spaces to facilitate patient comfort and a soothing environment.
