Project Description

Presence Center for Advanced Care

Chicago, IL

Located on the campus of Presence Saint Joseph Hospital, the 219,000 square foot Presence Center for Advanced Care is a premier one-stop destination for comprehensive outpatient services with advanced capabilities in cancer treatment, outpatient surgery and sports injuries.

Our graphic designers developed two large-scale custom wallcoverings. The first is installed near the entrance to the Musculoskeletal Institute. It features the lake front bike path and active people from every culture, gender, and age group. The other more graphic and inspirational wallcovering leads into the fitness and rehab area.

Our art selections celebrate the unique urban, Midwestern location, featuring local artists and photography helping to establish a sense of place.

Parallel with our Evidence Based Healing Art selections, we were mindful to incorporate the client’s brand image; a Catholic health system, inspired by the healing ministry of Jesus Christ, who provides compassionate, holistic care with a spirit of healing and hope.

Our unique approach to elevator signage combines art, wayfinding, and signage. Every level of the parking garage feature piece utilizes several visual ques to help guide patients back to their cars and reinforces this facilities connection to Chicago and the community. Each wayfinding art piece features:

  • A photo of a Chicago landmark
  • That landmark printed in bold letters
  • A color reference specific to that parking level
  • One large dimensional numeral
