Design that transforms holistic care for kids

There is universality to life’s journeys, and at the same time, a uniqueness of experience. For a child, going to the hospital is a journey like no other. It is shared with many and at the same time a solitary experience. The best children’s hospitals ameliorate this split by integrating the universal and the unique—location, history, cultures, people—creating an open canvas which invites children and families to paint themselves into the picture.

Healthcare architecture is the result of a perfect fusion of the ordinary and extraordinary, and this is manifested most creatively in environments for children.

Rady Children's Hospital Acute Care Pavilion

The Rady Children’s Hospital campus is like a small village with gardens, pathways, and a central piazza. The acute care pavilion furthers the art of healing kids. Each detail is designed to give the patients and family encouragement, and reduce anxiety. The pavilion features single patient rooms and a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) floor. Family rooms provide a place for the siblings to play, creating a decompression space for families and a sense of neighborhood. Read More

Robert Wood Johnson University – Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital

When the Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital (BMSCH) on the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital campus decided to expand we planned a seventh-floor shell space in the BMSCH plus a vertical expansion to an adjacent roof area. Using the vertical expansion, the main façade of the building was redefined and enhanced to better convey the hospital’s identity and pediatric nature. Read More
