Overview

Named for a number of original Keith Haring murals in its lobby, the organization’s work with children with AIDS, and extensive support from the Keith Haring Foundation, the clinic is an essential part of the support services provided to at-risk youth by Children’s Village. UQ worked closely with the medical and nursing staff to understand the daily functioning of the clinic and infirmary in order to rethink the existing space and design a better experience for staff and kids. The new plan layout includes a central pharmacy space that provides a visual connection to all other spaces that revolve around it. The occupants will have a much easier time navigating to different parts of the clinic and staff will be able to better secure patients’ safety. The floor pattern and color scheme for the interior spaces reference the vibrant artwork of the late Keith Haring and create a lively space for staff and patients alike.
