Whitton Health & Social Care Centre
This medical centre improves and reconnects community healthcare in the London Borough of Richmond and brings together a number of vital services ranging from mental health to podiatry.
We commissioned the artist Henna Nadeem, who created Drop as a two storey artwork sitting prominently on two walls of glazing at the main entrance. Research with local individuals and groups led the artist to identify nearby Crane Valley Park as a place of almost universal physical and mental well-being.
The work reflects the colours and rhythms of wildflowers found throughout the park and is a distinctive repeating field of coloured petals. Curators Modus Operandi managed the commission, which was supported by a grant from the Charitable Fund.
