The Architect for the new hospital at Stamford used the Planetree Philosophy to inspire its design. The contemporary building provides a welcoming environment, using natural finishes and plenty of natural light. PDG collaborated with the architect to design the Cornerstone Display with these elements in mind. It is the first thing visitors see when they enter the grand lobby.
The Cornerstone Display recognizes a group of major donors who were essential in realizing this one-of-a-kind facility. Names of the major donors are displayed in brushed aluminum letters, pin-mounted over two sides of a stone column measuring 29ft high. The design is grand, but simple and elegant in presentation, and reflects the importance of this group’s generosity toward Stamford Health.
Throughout the hospital, you’ll find a theme of donor recognition that is clean and understated and permeates the ideal of generosity and philanthropy. The use of the Sycamore Tree was a visual representation of the Planetree Theory as a reminder to all - Stamfords’ commitment to Person-Centered Care.
