Design Showcase Delivers: Boston Children's at Brookline Place

Steffian Bradley Architects (SBA) is currently providing design services for the fit-out of Boston Children’s at Brookline Place, a new eight-story building housing 144,000 sf of program space for the country’s top-ranked children’s hospital’s ambulatory clinical programs. Within the building there will be a Neurodevelopmental and Neuropsychiatric Center co-locating multi-disciplinary providers treating patients diagnosed with disorders relating to Behavioral Health, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity, Autism Spectrum and Cognitive Development, Speech/ Language and Hearing. Other departments will include: a procedure suite, MRI’s, PT/OT, Chronic Pain Services, Immunology, Ophthalmology and Dental. 

On December 13, 2017, a design showcase was held for Boston Children's staff, patients and families to visit and speak with our design team, allowing them to view the interior spaces, design themes and finishes of the future building.  The following article was featured on Boston Children's Today on December 19, 2017 which recapped the event. The article was written by Boston Children's Marketing and Communication's team. 

Visitors to the Design Showcase for Boston Children’s at Brookline Place left energized and inspired after viewing the interior spaces, design themes and finishes of the future building. Staff, patients and families spoke with the design team, viewed 3-D models and posters, and experienced 360-degree views of several spaces — waiting rooms, exam rooms, lobbies and corridors — by wearing 3-D lenses that connected to mobile devices. 

The Design Showcase provided a valuable opportunity to engage the community in a collaborative way and hear important feedback that will enhance the design of the new building. For example, the design research that had been conducted to accommodate various patient populations and programs that will move to Boston Children's at Brookline Place — such as developmental, visually impaired and pain — received positive feedback. 

One of the signature features was giving attendees the ability to vote on design themes that will be incorporated into Boston Children’s at Brookline Place. The theme will communicate the concept of “The Amazing You” and how children explore and experience the world through their senses: move/play, breathe/smell, touch/feel, listen/hear, taste, look/see, and create/think. The final voting results will be shared with the community in the new year.

Here are some photos from the event:
