2013 Award Recipients

The CARITAS Project, its Advisory Board, and its Award Judges and Partners are delighted to announce the Award Recipients for the Fourth Annual Generative Space Award.

Project Title:
Randall Children's Hospital at Legacy Emanuel

Randall Children's Hospital

The 334,000 SF, nine-story Randall Children's Hospital consolidates pediatric services in a family-centered care environment and creates a new identity for the children's hospital on the Legacy Emanuel Medical Center campus. The facility houses 165 inpatient beds in single rooms for acute care, neonatal intensive care, and pediatric intensive care, a new pediatric Emergency Department, short-stay unit, the Children's Cancer and Blood Disorder Unit, a pharmacy, and rehabilitation gym. New gardens off the first floor lobby and third floor public area provide open space areas for play, conversation and contemplation, and connections to nature. Generative highlights include an integrated and self-reinforcing environment; improved patient and family satisfaction; reciprocal and mutual collaboration across organizations; systemic improvements in health, vitality, and well-being of individuals from patients and families to staff and visitors; community support and newfound physical connections to community; and sustainable strategies that support environmental awareness.

Judges' Comments:

‘Interiors are carefully considered, with specific references to children and young adult needs allowed to surface, bringing individuality and life to the spaces. The inclusion of generous spaces for parents and carers is particularly well provided, recognizing that generative space needs more than just an individual relationship with the environment.’

‘The building connection to the neighborhood, rather than just the campus, is outstanding.’

Project Title:
Waterford Health Park: A Place to Flourish

Waterford Health Park

Waterford Health Park is an enhanced Primary Care Centre located in Waterford City, Ireland. The Waterford Health Park envisages a new understanding of health where social inclusion and community development support systemic and sustainable improvements in health. Our aim is that the Waterford Health Park building becomes the change agent for improvements in the health of our community through joined up thinking, linking primary healthcare with education (local schools), sports clubs, environment and our City. In 2009 the building was developed into Waterford Health Park conserving the building's existing features while additional space was created through the addition of new wings using the latest in sustainable technologies to create a healthy and eco-friendly building taking advantage of solar energy and reusing captured rainwater. The original building is a protected structure of National importance that has been part of Waterford's fabric since the mid-19th Century having been designed by AWN Pugin
