YPMD Pediatric Neurology Clinic
Synthesis Design and Architecture collaborated with NOWN’s Solutions Studio® to design and fabricate custom grooved geometric Soft Sound® through Dr. Ying Peng’s office. The acoustic wall-cladding system was thoughtfully integrated into surrounding windows, cascading into bench-like seating surfaces, and lessening the austere doors of the YPMD Pediatric Neurology Clinic. The grooves in the panels manage the sound of children playing. Simultaneously, the panels’ soothing heather grey color tones and soft tactile quality transform a commonly sterile and uncomfortable medical facility into a protected, inviting, and calming environment while entertaining and encouraging the wonder and creativity of its young patients and their families.
