HISTORICAL IMAGERY EMBEDDED INTO ACROVYN BY DESIGN®
WALL PROTECTION AT GenesisCare, Nedlands
What a great idea to showcase and preserve historical imagery in a long-established healthcare setting like GenesisCare Nedlands, which forms part of Hollywood Private Hospital.
The concept was sparked off by Balance Commercial Fit Out who wanted to “reflect the history not only of the building but all those that ‘walked’ the walls and grounds during the time”. The images add a unique touch to the building’s entrance area, and are on display to anyone who enters the foyer.
Supply and install custom wall protection to splash-back in foyer utility area.
Product: Acrovyn by Design®, historical imagery embedded into Acrovyn Wall Protection.

SHOWCASING HISTORY WHILE
PRESERVING INTERIOR WALLS
What a great way to use images from the past to showcase them well into the future…
…while providing complete protection to the walls and the digital imagery.
A FASCINATING HISTORY BROUGHT TO LIFE
SOURCE OF IMAGES
Sharron at Balance Commercial Fit Out went to great lengths to source appropriate historical images. “Everyone’s a Hero”, a book by Roz Davies, proved to be a rich source of valuable material – so rich in fact that it was difficult to whittle down the choices to arrive at the final selection.
The book chronicles the hospital’s 70-year history beginning with its inception as an army-run unit, built during WWII with the purpose of treating returning war casualties. In 1947, responsibility for the ‘repat’ hospital shifted to the Veteran Affairs Department. As time went on and with fewer veterans needing treatment, the hospital was bought in 1994 by private operator Ramsay Health Care.
