Bellevue Children's Clinic interior illustration project





It has been an amazing experience to work on this project with the NBBJ architects team and the Children's design team this spring and summer. I loved the challenge of coming up with a concept that effectively communicates the essence of Children's brand message, and makes sense of the way the clinic is organized: there are 6 color coded hallways for patients, 4 staff areas with huge glass walls, "sibling playroom" and the "surgery portal" upstairs. All the work has been inspired by Northwest flora and fauna to make it more meaningful and welcoming for staff and families that use these facilities. 

Here are some more photo samples (the really nice, professional shots are by Benjamin Benschneider):

I am so deeply moved by this work. There is such a sense of tranquility, wonderment and harmony in the midst of such fantastic energy and creativity that is just bubbling over. Like a river, there are moments of quiet reflection and then such dynamic energy. I think this work transforms the place into a healing space. Heart opening, indeed. Thank you for being you!
