Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital Of Chicago

 

This complex high-rise hospital provides a welcoming, child-centered environment while supporting advanced medical technology and goals of low maintenance, low operating cost, and energy efficiency. The interior lighting enhances the unique community-initiated decor, and is integrated into discovery boxes for visual diversion at child height. From a central playroom, children can connect to the world outside by controlling the color-changing LED exterior façade lighting. Energy efficiency goals were achieved with multi-level lighting controls, dedicated task lighting, and daylight harvesting.
