Scripps Catheterization Lab
The extensive renovation and expansion of the catheterization lab of Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, California, included a unique placement of Sky Factory Luminous Virtual Windows™ in the angled bulkheads over each of the six recovery bays. In this way, the designers at Childs, Mascari, Warner Architects were able to provide the soothing presence of fresh open sky in the below grade interior environment where it was impossible to install actual skylights.
Cath Lab Lead Mark Barongan said there has been very positive feedback from patients who appreciate having the pleasant distraction from being in the hospital, and an engagingly attractive point of focus.
