Sturdy and attractive wooden railway sleeper benches in the centre of Liverpool Women's Hospital, creating a quiet outside seating area.
Most people's experiences at hospital will involve the frustration of waiting around for hours and hours. All credit to Liverpool Women's Hospital who have designed a peaceful outside seating area for patients, staff and visitors using attractive chunky railway sleeper benches, that hopefully make the hours pass that much quicker. They could have used anonymous concrete, or sterile metal, but they have chosen a unique material with life and movement. Very appropriate for a maternity hospital!
