Selbert Perkins Design has worked with the nation’s top pediatric hospital for over 15 years on numerous projects. Integrated wayfinding, placemaking, and donor recognition are strategic parts of each project to improve the patient-family experience. SPD’s recent work with Boston Children’s Hospital has focused on improving the Main Campus arrival experience. This includes signage along Longwood Avenue in collaboration with Mikyoung Kim. The Pedestrian bridge, designed by Elkus Manfredi and Patient Family Parking Garage by Payette feature art, wayfinding, and donor recognition inspired by DNA sequencing. The environmental art strategy includes a 3-story dimensional mural and backlit photo-mosaic of a child’s face made up of hundreds of photos of staff and families collected during the 150th anniversary of the hospital. SPD continues to help Boston Children’s improve the experience with patient room art and roof designs visible from inpatient rooms in collaboration with Shepley Bulfinch.
