Flowcrete Sparkles at Hospital’s New Disney Café

Flowcrete has been involved in an exciting floor refurbishment project at London’s celebrated Great Ormond Street Hospital, which has been funded in conjunction with the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity and The Walt Disney Company.

Partnering together as part of the hospital’s amazing re-development appeal, Disney has helped to raise £10 million to provide a new cafeteria, restaurant and interactive Disney-themed relaxation area for patients and their families, housed in the newly opened Morgan Stanley Clinical Building. The design and interior fit-out of both the main cafeteria and adjoining play area is inspired by the magical world of Disney, featuring a striking illuminated ceiling in a series of coloured bands. Also bringing a sprinkle of fairy dust to the new area’s interior design is a sparkling seamless terrazzo floor finish from Flowcrete. Incorporating a blend of recycled glass and mirror glass aggregates within a coloured epoxy resin material, Flowcrete’s Mondéco terrazzo provides clients with a floor that shimmers underfoot. Throughout the cafeteria and adjoining play area, Mondéco has been installed in contrasting monochrome shades in an eye-catching curved pattern. Mondéco is extremely hardwearing and can withstand high volumes of foot traffic as well as providing excellent impact, scratch and slip-resistance. Its seamless profile makes it an ideal choice for environments where hygiene is a critical issue. Eliminating the grouted joints that come with tiled finishes, Mondéco terrazzo can be easily cleaned, without fear of dirt, dust and bacteria gathering in cracks and crevices. The terrazzo material serves as a perfect backdrop for the futuristic interior of the Lagoon cafeteria and Disney-themed play area.
