The art images you see here are the result of excellent teamwork: I worked with Seattle Children's facilities planning and design team, and the NBBJ architecture team to bring this project together. The carefully planned out interior art system creates a familiar, comforting atmosphere for all visitors. The primary goal was to create a casual environment where visitors feel at ease in a welcoming and caring environment. Upon entering this healthcare facility patients can readily recognize all the local plants and animals on the murals. Wayfinding is made easy inside the clinic by color-coded hallways and patient corridors. This Seattle Children's clinic serves kids of all ages between 0-21 with a wide range of cultural backgrounds. The murals and the colorful surroundings also help the hospital clinic staff: their work is easier done in a beautiful environment, and the strategically illustrated art pieces help them to do their procedures efficiently.

This photo shows the main hallway in the Bellevue Clinic, all four patient hallways open from here, and all the glass front staff rooms are located here.

Each of the four patient hallways is color-coded for more natural wayfinding and orientation. Each corridor has an overall concept (orange hall has songbirds of the Northwest), and the exam room doors have unique art decal identifiers.

I designed this green color-coded hallway around the concept of Northwest botanical gardens.

Each patient/child is unique and beautiful just like the wildflowers on Mount Rainier.

This mural is in the lobby where kids and parents wait before surgery. The theme of the wall (at the staff's request) is sleep, and it is giving a chance for parents and kids to have a conversation about what to expect at the upcoming procedure.

This mural at the request of the clinic staff addresses some of the procedures that happen before surgery (like taking some of the differently flavored anxiety reducing laughing gasses available). The rest of the mural encourages kids to be "cool as a cucumber" or "tough as a cookie" cause the surgery will be a piece of cake. All the details in the art invite exploration and conversation.

All the art on the Imaging floor has a night time theme with calm, blue hues and sparkly accents.

It was super fun to transform this stark, white room into something friendly. The concept for the art was the magnetic MRI particles and their movement.
