Pediatric Hematology / Oncology

Location: Cohen Children's Medical Center, New Hyde Park, NY

The Cohen Children's Medical Center strives to make their patients feel at ease. Continuing the concept of playfulness used throughout the hospital, TWINE embellished the new pediatric infusion suite with color and pattern. The organic oval shapes in the cubical curtain served as inspiration for the other finishes within the suite. Iridescent glass and wall covering bring a luster to the space, while the tone-on-tone linoleum pattern with its punches of color acts as a counterpoint to the visual stimulation.

Twine Architectural Studio had provided programming and planning services for the Department of Pediatric Hematology / Oncology at CCMC for a number of years. The Department had been looking for ways to expand their current second floor infusion suite since 2001. When shell space became available on the fourth floor an opportunity arose to relocate the entire suite and finally provide proper patient care and support spaces for this function. TWINE continued on the project to program, plan and provide interior design services for the new location.
