Portsmouth Regional Hospital Portsmouth, NH
SHOALS HEART AND LUNG BUILDING
This renovation project converted a two story psychiatric hospital to a state-of-the-art heart pavilion. Beginning at the entrance to the facility, the redesigned drop-off canopy provides a new identity for the building and welcomes visitors and patients upon approach. Sconces wash the canopy with soft light at night.
Within the lobby, visitors and patients are greeted at a broad reception desk and guided to their destination by a clear way finding defined by warm tones of wood and granite walls that make reference to New Hampshire's moniker of "The Granite State". Art work features photographs of familiar and nearby historical sites.
The redesigned building houses cardiac diagnostic services, cardiac catheterization laboratories, and patient prep and recovery suites.
