St George’s Hospital, Tooting, is participating in the Open House London Weekend on 17th and 18th September by showcasing the Grosvenor Wing main entrance.

St George’s Open House day will run from 10:00hrs -16:00hrs and architect Sylwia Nyga from Gibberd Architects, artist Rebecca Salter and landscape designers Charles Funke will be present to talk about their work. Visitors can enjoy a 30 minute guided tour at 10:30, 11:30, 12:30, 13:30, 14:30 and 15:30.

Sharon Welby, assistant director capital projects, said: “We are delighted with the invitation to showcase our main entrance; a project we are extremely proud of. The redesign of the main entrance interior and gardens creates a surprising and highly visible new approach to the hospital. It is a light, welcoming space that retains the reassurance of arriving at one of the country’s principal teaching hospitals and we look forward to explaining the design process to visitors.”
