Children’s Minnesota is the destination for pediatric care for children and families throughout the Upper Midwest. The people come from a rich array of cultural backgrounds, reflective of the community’s growing diversity. Along with the most significant development in its history, to renovate and expand outdated facilities, Children’s has embraced an unprecedented opportunity to merge architecture, interior design, landscape design, science and art in a way that will ultimately transform the health-care experience of the people who come to the Minneapolis, St. Paul and Mother Baby campuses.
Aesthetics, Inc. was hired to help Children’s implement a vision for an Arts & Healing Urban Renewal Project with the local arts community. Partnerships with the arts community drove the building’s interior art and design themes. These themes add discovery and wonder to the patient journey and lend an identity to each level of the building. In tandem with the interior design concepts, these themes create a consistent, branded experience throughout the Minneapolis campus. Color, texture, art, graphics, and displays all support the organization’s presence in the community.
This Donor Recognition Display integrates the Interiors concepts with the themes developed by the foundation to recognize community donors.
It wasn’t until we brought in the expertise of Aesthetics that we were able to move from lofty vision to strategic implementation of our Arts and Healing and Urban Renewal initiative at Children’s of Minnesota. Moreover, the team from Aesthetics has been embraced by every facet of our organization as they work to help bring our vision to reality.”~Mark P.
