Welcoming Space for Patients and Family
TEXAS CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL WEST CAMPUS, HOUSTON
The new Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus is the first community children’s hospital to be built in the greater Houston area. The architectural vocabulary of the existing main campus of Texas Children’s Hospital has been reinterpreted in this suburban setting. The curved face, state-of-the-art glazing and colorful spheres make the West Campus entirely unique and distinctive. The site is organized around a central elliptical plaza containing parking, extensive landscaping and special lighting. Two of the building’s wings embrace the central ellipse, forming “welcoming arms” to greet patients and family.
