This children’s hospital expansion centers on a spectacular lobby and open, five-story atrium. The focal point of the 42,000-square-foot terrazzo floor is the cheerful sunburst with its rays; a geometric spiral of simple shapes and seven bright colors. Eye-directing patterns and colors guide the flow of movement within the neutral palette of the atrium. Multiple arcs flow smoothly from one end of the space to the other, taking into account walls and other obstacles. The sunburst is designed to define an area as a stage for live performances that patients on all floors can see from their care unit.
