HMN Architects, Inc. has partnered with Children's Mercy Hospital on a
5,000 square foot relocation and renovation of their Hospital Gift Shop,
in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. The new area including retail,
storage, office and circulation spaces; has been relocated to a more
prominent area within the hospital, increasing the convenience for
patients and their families to discover and utilize.
The new gift shop has been designed to appeal to the full range of ages
for the children served by Children's Mercy. A neutral palette comprises
the majority of the finishes within the space, allowing the whimsicality
and playful nature to subsist within the changing light patterns,
projections and interactive imagery.
The primary ceiling in the gift shop is open to the structure, which has
been fully blacked out above and arrayed with a system of white
suspended fins, which are lit from above by programmable LEDs. The color
of the lighting is programmed to change and track across the space to
allow the fins to appear to be dynamically undulating above the shop's
patrons. A number of backlit LED components, including a kaleidoscope,
iconographic signage, and millwork elements, are linked to the same
software program; allowing the color of the light to vary in conjunction
with the overhead fin elements. An interactive floor projection
occurring in the corner of the shop serves as a fun and inviting
destination for young and old alike.
The new design and location for the Children's Mercy Gift Shop have
proven successful in improving the visibility, enticement and allure of
this service within the Hospital; improving both patronage and revenue.
