Hoag Hospital Irvine
Mountain design, Glacier White. Architect: LPA Design Studios.
An organic connection to nature is evoked upon first steps into the Fudge Family Birthing Suites at Hoag Hospital Irvine. The nearby Irvine Mountains are brought inside the environment to surround the birth experience in a womb of natural comfort. Expressed in a medium that renders the calming and non-repeating geologic forms with inspiring verticality, this pristine white surface also announces the truth of its easy cleaning and maintenance.
