Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center / Family Resource Center
Location: Cincinnati, Ohio
Scope: Full Architectural Services
Size: 3,950 SF
The Family Resource Center embodies the commitment to family-centered care at Cincinnati Children’s, one of the nation’s top three pediatric hospitals. Its two-fold mission provides education and coaching for families while offering respite and repose in a place apart from the clinical environment. GBBN carefully inserted the 3950 sf structure into a roughly triangular space between the main entry drive and parking garage ramp, surrounding it with ornamental landscaping and a secluded garden patio for family clients. The diminutive pavilion exerts an out-sized influence, providing a glassy dynamic counterpoint to surrounding brick and stone hospital buildings, offering an iconic point of reference for patients, staff and visitors alike.
