Designing healthcare spaces for children requires a whole different level of appreciation and design elements. Knowing this the team at Northside Pediatrics turned to WBI to create a new space for their more than 9,600 SF patient rooms and support areas located in Sandy Springs, Georgia.
WBI took cues from Northside Pediatrics mission of keeping all children healthy with the highest quality of comprehensive and compassionate support, to establish a welcoming and healing environment for the thousands of children that visit each year. Since patients range in age from 0-26, the design intent was to create a light and bright space that was neither too childish, or thematic. The design taps children’s imaginations through the use of bright crisp colors combined with neutral tones, as well as the use of natural light and exterior views. Due to the fact pediatric patients have a variety of accessibility needs, WBI equipped Northside Pediatrics with movable 3-form panels to provide the ability to enlarge the sick or well waiting areas as needed.
WBI created a space for Northside Pediatrics that appealed aesthetically to children, adolescents and adults, while engaging and delighting everyone that walks through the doors.
