Developmental Disabilities Institute
This is an organization providing services to mentally retarded and developmentally disabled adults and children. We designed five article 28 diagnostic and treatment clinics to serve a population of over 1400 day treatment program participants, as well as a wider population similarly afflicted. The clinics contain treatment rooms, radiology suites, dental operatories, therapy suites, and offices. Working in close harmony with our client, we developed a program that called for warm, user-friendly environments designed to make both patients and staff feel comfortable. We were concerned with establishing circulation paths that would be interesting as well as assist in way-finding. We designed sculptural reliefs as points of interest to provide identity for each location. All furniture, fixtures, and equipment were also either designed or selected by our firm.
