The Adventist Health / Valley Children’s Family Health & Life Center is a finalist in the 2020 Design Showcase awards, sponsored by Healthcare Design.

Adventist Health / Valley Children’s Family Health & Life Center—a first of its kind in the area—incorporates natural light, rich colors, and lofty spaces into a comfortable aesthetic reflecting the local community’s history and agricultural values. The inviting facility is designed to double as a community center with social spaces, life coaches, playgrounds, and meeting rooms. An internal courtyard bridges adult and children’s health, connecting them through positive engagement, while providing fresh air.

The material palette is neutral reflecting the colors and tones of the surrounding landscape. Vitality and vibrant energy is inserted through colorful abstracted sculptural fruits and vegetables, native to the valley, hang together in radiant clusters reflecting light throughout the space.
