Texas Children’s Hospital
Inventure Design created the interior of The Pavilion for Women, an addition to the Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, with contemporary aesthetics as well as acoustics conducive to a multi-disciplinary medical care center. The maternity hospital interior called for accessible ceilings with soft curves and a stepped installation on the first, third and fourth floors. These ceiling height changes required a ceiling panel that would be easy to install and cut in the field. The designers chose the Ecophon® Focus™ Ds high-density fiberglass ceiling panels, which met the project’s visual and performance requirements. The panels are highly sound absorbent (0.85 NRC), can be cleanly cut into any shape, have high light reflectivity (85%) and give the ceiling a clean, bright appearance.
