When Smith Senior Living set out to expand their Orland Park campus, they wanted to redefine the skilled nursing environment by focusing on designing warm, hospitality-oriented spaces. With the support of an extensive team, they crafted inviting gathering spaces, a beautiful dining area, an outdoor courtyard, and complete therapy suite to accommodate residents and guests. The intentional design was also intended to trigger memories and encourage guests out of their rooms to the common areas, where they can find community, explore, and socialize.

The medical center houses areas for ambulatory surgery, robotic technology for non-invasive surgeries, imaging, urgent care, an OBGYM clinic, primary care, a shell space, and a tenet space. These diverse needs required furniture and design that would both support many needs and provide respite for waiting patients and guests. With the help of Gresham Smith, they constructed an inspiring, calming space full of natural light.

The Baptist Memorial Hospital in Crittenden had served a small rural community in West Memphis for years, but needed more space and resources to accommodate a growing number of patients. Despite these needs, they had an extremely limited budget to achieve all of the enhancements that they required. With the help of ESarch and Carolina, they created a new campus that included additional beds, a cancer center, a more efficient ED overflow system, an indoor-outdoor cafe, and a small chapel—all within budget. Today, the hospital can better serve both the medical staff and patients through their new, inviting and space-efficient space.

The UC Irvine Medical Center was looking to upgrade the Chao Comprehensive Digestive Disease Center by expanding clinical and support spaces as well as updating the style to feel more light, airy, and welcoming. With the help of Tangram and Tangram’s in-house designer, the team chose Carolina furniture to create cohesive waiting spaces for the newly renovated Center.

Despite the first floor waiting area’s long and thin dimensions, designers used flooring details both inside and out to create the illusion of no-boundaries, complete with floor-to-ceiling windows and the thin frame of Rule of Three seating. Today, the furniture and space maintain a fresh, uplifting place to help patients find more comfort and beauty in healing spaces.

One of the pre-eminent challenges in designing the Inova Women’s Hospital and Inova Children’s Hospital was to create distinct yet complementary identities for each of these institutions sharing the same newly constructed building.
