Elevating the Patient Experience

Working with Connecticut Children’s staff and providers, Tecton was challenged to create an environment that builds community and nurtures healing, while facilitating care.


Connecticut Children's new Infusion Center presents a study in imagination and investment in the patient journey. Understanding the grueling hours that children can spend in treatment for chronic conditions, the team envisioned a creative and energizing space that balances patient care and delight. Through physical and digital design features, the feeling of a mystical outdoor adventure was created.



  • Each space harnesses the positive effects of energizing color, soft forms, natural light and biophilic imagery, to create a welcoming and reassuring environment for patients and their families.
  • The Connecticut Children's brand and spirit are evident as a feeling, more than a literal interpretation of a standard, and provide a common thread between offices and facilities.
  • Color-changing lights, secret passageways and graphic elements add nuance to an otherwise repetitive experience.
