Project Report: St. Louis Children’s Hospital

Evidence-Based Design (EBD) in Practice

Our goal was to use evidence-based design to develop an artwork program that would complement views of Forest Park and the bold super graphics already included in the design.

The project incorporates artwork related to the surrounding community and its rich cultural offerings, expanding upon the concepts of nature-based, local art to create an uplifting, enriching, and engaging environment.

Adhering to the stringent fire code was the highest priority. So, our team researched materials and designed a custom artwork product with a Class A fire rating to meet the hospital’s safety standards.

Project Objectives:

  • Support improved navigation and wayfinding

  • Feature interactive and educational nature-based artwork

  • Coordinate with the existing interior design elements

  • Design a custom artwork product to meet safety standards
