    A dream that endured nearly 50 years has finally been realized and we can be proud of our contribution to this story. The Hospital Restinga e Extremo-Sul is a public/private initiative that is administered by Hospital Moinhos de Vento, and that serves several neighborhoods throughout the city.

    We coordinated several key points of contact in this process. Besides the constant exchanges with medical and operational teams, we also had to integrate our effort with the interior design of MW Arquitetura and with the broad participation of the community in researching the language adaptations we designed for the public. 

    The Wayfinding system relies on universal symbols and efficient typography to produce simple and direct communication. The colors for each section reinforce the spaces and give life to an environment full of hope
