The colour scheme in this project was very important as the designers split each area of the hospital up by colour. Giving each floor or hospital area a distinct visual identity through colour helps patients and visitors find their way more easily, therefore strong colours can be a very valuable tool in helping people around the hospital, especially those with dementia or visual impairments.
