Congratulations go to ZGF Architects for Interiors Awards 2013: Healthcare from Contract Magazine for the design of Randall Children’s Hospital
"Located on the Legacy Emanuel Medical Center campus in Portland, Oregon, the 334,000-square-foot facility consolidates services that were previously housed in disparate locations and connects to an existing hospital building that still provides support services. Appropriately, the new facility references its Pacific Northwestern context, but also takes cues from hospitality design and the visuals to which children respond positively."
Combatting the fear and anxiety experienced during hospital visits is especially challenging for children and their families, but the ZGF design beckons children to come in and play.
