DDI provided a full scope of interior design services, including an environmental graphics and orientation system, for the Children’s Seashore House. This 151,000 square foot pediatric rehabilitation hospital consists of 70 patient beds, outpatient services, therapy rooms, administrative offices, a multi-purpose two-story gymnasium, exam rooms and snack bar.
The hospital has been designed to be responsive to the very special needs of patients ranging in age from infant to teen who often stay for extended periods of time, and to meet the operational requirements of the medical staff caring for them. Nurses’ stations have been designed with curved walls and curved custom millwork to provide a more playful, less threatening atmosphere for the children.
The Daroff Design team created a cheerful environment conducive to healing which reinforces the psychological well-being of Seashore House’s young patients and their parents.
