Following the successful installation of our Public Artworks at the new Kilsyth Health Centre, Perpsex have featured the project in their trade magazine ‘Going Forward’.
‘Perspex® acrylic fabricator, QD Plastics has recently completed an eye-catching tower of Perspex® acrylic at the brand new £7.8m Kilsyth Health Centre in Lanarkshire, Scotland as part of a public artwork designed by Civic Architects. The contemporary installation has been designed to provide a positive sensory influence on all those who use the facility’.
The overlapping Perspex® acrylic panels cast colour shadows across the walls, courtyard and corridors of the building creating a welcoming feel to the space. Glasgow-based approved Perspex® fabricator, QD Plastics cut messages into the materials linking the sculpture to local places and thoughts. The text was gathered from the people of Kilsyth, who were encouraged to express their thoughts about the locality – the hope being that the messages would provide a positive, meaningful distraction for patients, visitors and staff at the new health centre. The vertical structure encourages viewers to look into the sky for reflection.
