Mayo Health, T. Denny Sanford Pediatric Center

Consolidation of the Mayo's Pediatrics specialty clinics created a unique design opportunity for our team. We included a Minnesota themed biome for each of the four wings with habitats, creatures and curious details. The lobby welcomes all visitors with a healing experience especially for those children and caretakers who come to the clinic from around the world. Goals were to set this area apart from other Mayo floors by expressing the beauty of Minnesota’s natural environment. The rivers, lakes, forest, and prairies are experiences through the senses of a child - more play and exploration than literal illustrations. Materials and light play on translucencies and layers. There are always new treasures to find.
