Dublin Methodist Hospital
Lighting Design services for this construction project included interior lighting design, specification and construction administration for this 300,000 square foot facility. The Hospital includes 94 private patient rooms, a full-service emergency department, women’s health services, as well as outpatient and inpatient surgical services.
This project was a Pebble Project research effort with the Center for Health and Design and incorporated day-lighting into many of the spaces in an attempt to bring views of nature into the healing environment. The lighting design also focused on creating a flow within the building to help identify paths of travel and then create small breaks within that path to allow for a sense of release. The lighting was layered within the space and controlled separately to allow for the natural shift in circadian rhythms.
The lighting design included: Patient, LDR, and Exam Rooms; Nursing Stations; Patient and Nursing Corridors; Main Atrium; ER Atrium; Waiting areas; Retail; Cafeteria and Dining; and Conference space. Integration of day-lighting systems and design for interior courtyard illumination was also included.
