The facilities offer patients and their families private rooms. Noteworthy design elements include: > Private rooms designed for the comfort of patients and with accommodations for family members. The buildings' layouts and orienta- tion of patient rooms maximize views of For- est Park. Designers also evaluated how bed placement, light exposure and color would enhance the comfort of patients and the work environment of doctors and other caregivers. > Dedicated corridors for patients and for medical and hospital staff members are de- signed to reduce distractions and noise that can interfere with rest and recuperation. > Rooftop gardens — two at Parkview Tower and one at the St. Louis Children's Hospital expansion — will provide patients and their families with calm and comfortable outdoor environments. More than 750 patients, physicians, nurses, nonclinical staff members and others participated during the design phase, offer- ing ideas about how people would use and experience spaces within the new buildings. The project team included HOK, BR+A and ACW Alliance (joint venture of Alberici, Clayco and SM Wilson). WUMC: Mstudio West/Matt McFarland New Towers Rise on Washington University Medical Campus
