Scripps Encinitas Donor Exhibit

 

Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas
As part of a recent expansion, Aesthetics created a custom interior site-specific donor recognition system for the new Leichtag Foundation Critical Care Pavilion at Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas.

In keeping with a coastal beach city feel of Encinitas, CA, the color palate and subtle etched detail of a starfish evoke the comforting feeling of sand and water.

Additonally, custom recognition along the promenade approaching the new pavilion has been coordinated in shades of blue to continue with the ocean them.
