emersion DESIGN was selected to provide design services for the renovation of the 3rd floor in-patient unit at Shriners Hospital in Cincinnati. The renovation included new flooring, paint, lighting, patient room millwork, plumbing fixtures, nurse's station millwork, and wayfinding signage and graphics. This update brought the space from an outdated mid-90's palette to modern day appeal to be welcoming to children and families while also functional for the medical staff.
The design concept was derived from the symbol on the fezzes worn by Shrine, the star of the emblem representing the thousands of children helped by their philanthropy each year. The star became the basis of wayfinding signage and highlighting patient rooms. The star graphic indicates each patient room from the corridor and is incorporated in the waiting area. The star symbol makes the space more welcoming for families and patients who spend time on the 3rd floor.
