Cherokee Replacement Hospital
North Georgia's remarkable economic growth and the natural vistas of the North Georgia Mountains became the foundation for the design solution for the Replacement Hospital. The team adopted the theme "Where Metro Meets the Mountains" while developing the interiors for the new hospital. The outcome embodies the convergence of a growing demand for cutting edge health care services and technology while rooting itself in familiar natural materials, colors and design elements that pay special homage to the county's unique landscape, heritage and community.
In keeping with this vision, mountainous elements such as stacked stone, terrazzo and earthen tones were intermingled with sleek building materials and expansive storefront windows. Themes were developed for each of the various service areas to separate departments and simplify way finding for visitors. Local visual ques inspired by lakes, forests, farms and mountains were introduced in the colors, fabrics, design elements and artwork.
