Pixar-Minded Pediatric Suite
Old-Fashioned Attentiveness, Forward-Thinking Pediatric Design
“Pixar-like, not Disney-esque”, was the mantra that surfaced from the start of the healthcare design of this pediatric project. Renovating a high-rise office meant rethinking an emerging practice as a branded environment. Patient experience begins online, is enhanced during office visits, and continues by modeling healthy attitudes at home. Families find the modest-sized waiting room charming. The modern and clean design avoids pediatric design of childhoods past. This is a waiting room that considers functionality, form, and family. The check-in desk, warmed by natural and color stained panels, dips in height. This allows enhanced usability. Children can find their place while parents are welcomed. The flexible waiting room plan allows families to congregate in nooks or seating arrangements that suit them best.
