Creating a Cohesive Space: Bridging Two Buildings Aesthetically
Art Curator, Lucile Packard Children's Hospital | Stanford
Director of Consulting, Skyline Art
Senior VP Strategic Space Planning & General Services, Lucile Packard Childrens Hospital | Stanford
Using Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital | Stanford as a case study, this presentation covers the various aesthetic considerations of a major hospital renovation project. Because LPCH more than doubled its footprint in 2017, the West building completed in 1991 now requires extensive remodeling to match the quality of the expanded facilities. Known as Packard 3.0, this facility reconstruction avoids the dichotomy of new vs. old, hoping to prevent feelings of neglect. Both buildings are located at the same address—connected by an architectural bridge—but joining the two spaces physically is not enough. Representing the Space Planning & Transition team, Jill Sullivan will co-present with the hospital’s Art Curator and Head Art Consultant to examine the importance of aesthetics when designing an inclusive environment. Topics include utilizing a color matrix and standard signage to create unity and the integration of an art collection to reinforce visual equity and overall cohesion.
