The Emergency Room


The Emergency Room

by Bert Pepler


If all you are after is a little TLC, the Emergency Room, will see you right. Architect, Bert Pepler, says that this project seemed to evolve for him. “Space was the departure point. The room is small and I wanted to open it up. I used the cross on the roof and the floor to lead the eye out, and then I thought; mirrors on the walls!”


Out of this, the idea of “hospital-chic” grew, Emergency Room features hospital props in cases and a mounted picture in an x-ray type lightbox. The floor is the red, flecked vinyl so common to hospitals. Rest assured, it does not smell like a hospital and, unfortunately, you have to arrange your own nurses.


So, if you need some recuperation time, book the emergency room, take two aspirins and call me in the morning.
