Advanced Pediatric Care Pavilion | Nicklaus Children’s Hospital

ARCH Design, Artwork & Framing was invited by the Architecture, Planning, Design & Construction team at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami, FL to provide a suite of local nature photography for the Advanced Pediatric Care Pavilion (APCP).

The project encompassed 200 acrylics, custom framed canvases and prints, and more than 250 shadow box frames for patient and staff art, as well as hanging systems for patient art for each of the 189 rooms. ARCH Design also collaborated with renowned Florida nature photographers to create a design-forward and family-friendly atmosphere that ties into the themes on each of the five patient floors: water, land, air, sun and space.

The imagery selected for this project was guided by feedback from focus groups conducted by Nicklaus Child Life and ARCH Design. The crisp, bright nature photography that the children favored complements the APCP’s contemporary architecture and interior design when presented in an understated silver frame or printed on sleek acrylic. Within this design framework, a mix of inviting landscapes and non-threatening animal imagery provide variety, educate, and celebrate the local ecology.

On each floor, two large gallery walls feature patient art that likewise ties into to the themes, honoring them by placing their work on par with prominent local photographers.  The artwork and patient art frames make the APCP more welcoming for both young patients as well as their families, ultimately reinforcing Nicklaus Children’s Hospital’s shift to a patient-centered model.
