The project consisted of a large addition to the existing hospital that houses the New OutPatient Services and New Surgery Center. This addition became one of the new front entries to the building. The existing Main Entrance was enhanced and added to as well. In addition to this project, there was a complete interior remodel of the dated and existing InPatient Wing. Overall square footage is over 50,000 square feet.
Artwork at Lexington Regional Health Center was not used in the most typical manner. Kurt Johnson Photography's artwork became a part of the overall brand of the facility. De-constructed tulip petals mimic'd the LRHC logo in both form and color throughout the new addition. Kurt Johnson Photography's imagery was then integrated into the overall building design and implemented as an artwork program throughout the facility.
The entire process was collaboration from the start. Each member, from client interaction, to the designer's inspiration and the artist's recommendation and implementation, was a synergy of ideas. The result: a thematic, integrated, bright and contemporary, yet calming look and feel throughout the entire updated facility. This team took this project from conception to completion, always with the "patient first" sensibility. The result? A success!
All great projects start with design thought leaders and client leaders that back it up and support the creative process. Lexington Regional Health Center was integral in the success of creation and implementation of the project.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
