CASE STUDY: Reception area and welcome wall of the Angie Fowler Adolescent & Young Adult Cancer Institute at University Hospitals (UH) Rainbow Babies & Children Hospital. 

 

Life affirming hospital space for young cancer patients

Thoughtful design focused on the patient and their family has the potential to change the clinical hospital environment.

The architecture has been developed as a journey of light and healing featuring DuPont Corian advanced surfacing material.

Touch screen wall

The interactive touch screen wall for playing games and watching movies, made entirely of DuPont Corian in the Glacier Ice and Glacier White colours, showcased how the material can be formed into virtually any shape or design through thermoforming and routing.

Rounded desk

The rounded desk is made of solid DuPont Corian in the Antarctica colour, which is a soft white textured, with large bright white particles.  A 60-foot curved welcome wall made of translucent smooth white DuPont Corian in the Glacier Ice colour is illuminated from within with ever-changing neon colours.
