With 15 rich, dense colors mixed with glass, crushed mirror and marble, this project meets the goal of providing a vibrant, playful atmosphere for young patients. The stylized, cheery animals in water-jet-cut zinc are appropriately scaled for the space. All divider strips were placed by hand, for true circles and clean intersections. The 20,000-square-foot installation also includes six flights of precast terrazzo stairs, with landings poured-in-place to meet the precast edge for a nearly invisible seam. The floor was designed to respond to the flow of traffic and to connect the architecture with the furnishings.
