ARCHITECT : STANTEC ARCHITECTURE/PHOTO : COURTESY STANTEC ARCHITECTURE As Picard wrote in the Globe, the hospital’s « formhas a function » and supports the healthcare-delivery notion that « place matters. » The same can be said of the Children’s Health Centre at Surrey Memorial Hospital in B.C. « Delight in nature » is the theme threaded throughout the centre. For instance, the rainbow is a recurring motif, appearing in the blue-green-yelloworange-red-purple sequence of frittered-glass sunscreen panels shielding the lobby windows. The rainbow is also embedded in the flooring pattern of the lobby at the main entrance. At the front, a wooden beamed « sleeping dragon’s tail » canopy provides rain shelter from the drop-off area to the lobby. The entrance also includes four sculptures of children at play – doing cartwheels, jumping and swinging – and each sculpture is a different colour of the rainbow to celebrate the « innate cultural and racial tolerance of children, » according to Vancouver-based Stantec Architecture Ltd., the The entry court at the Children’s Health Centre at Surrey Memorial Hospital. firmthat designed the Children’s Health Centre. « A lot of children’s hospitals follow the usual : Putup a bunch of Walt Disney pictures on the walls as something that children and parents are going to respond to, » says Bruce Raber, MRAIC, Stantec Architecture’s vicepresident and practice area leader, who was involved in the project. « We deliberately took an approach that was going to appeal to people of allages, and is more than just cartoons. » For example, he explains that there are 14 accessible roof decks and terraces throughout the building where families can go outside for a breath of fresh air or view the exterior courtyard that captures the look of a woodland forest. The 30,000-square-metre facility is also bright inside. Every patient room is equipped with bay windows, which Raber explains, reflects research that shows access to natural light can hasten the healing process. « We also feel that the art and sculpture ARCHITECT : STANTEC ARCHITECTURE/PHOTO : GRANT MACEACHERN, OAA, MRAIC Health-care design that relates to nature and whimsy makes people feel a little more comfortable during a bad period in their lives. » So, a brightly coloured frog, which comprises a 3-D display, greets people as they walk into the centre. When they lookup at the ceiling, coloured « spring green, » they see a flock of swallows outlines cut into a large curving rainbow beam that holdsup the lobby roof. Another flock fliesup the banister panels along the main circular stairs to the maternity and surgical in-patient floors. The firm’s project description explains that the rainbow and springtime designs serve as « natural reminders that growth and renewal follow adversity. » Green tree branches shelter the nurses’station. Pieces of rainbow lead into each patient room. There are also opportunities for play.
