About the Solution
ASI was tasked with implementing an organized, easy to navigate wayfinding solution for the hospital. After consulting with the client, it was important to also incorporate special elements designed with children in mind.
ASI’s vibrant signage package consists of color-coordinated hospital areas to aid visitors in navigation. Each color theme symbolizes a different part of Louisiana’s ecosystem, with the Mississippi River and the swamplands represented – even the floor has a stunning, fresh blue finish.
As visitors and patients walk through this facility designed for children, the architectural signage both effectively guides and enhances the hospital environment.
