Children’s of Alabama: Comprehensive Diabetes Center
Children’s Hospital of Alabama envisioned a comprehensive pediatric diabetes center to be located in an existing office space. Unique to the State of Alabama, the Diabetes Center houses diabetes, endocrinology, rheumatology, allergy and immunology clinics providing comprehensive treatment for children and adolescents.
The clinic includes a waiting space, an IV space, a pump therapy education room, exam rooms and other educational classrooms. Ancillary space including imaging and laboratory space completes the 15,000 square foot first floor fit up. In addition, the second floor up-fit included 18,800 square feet of offices for the Comprehensive Diabetes Center staff.
To balance the strong elements of the existing concrete and glass structure, a curving wood wall and vibrant fabrics within the lobby space introduce a warm palette of materials. This curved element helps to organize the space and guide visitors.
