We created thirty-one custom Laser Cut panels for the Rapid City Regional Health Center lobby in Rapid City, South Dakota. Specified by Nashville-based firm Earl Swensson Architects, the Center’s primary goal was to become more patient-centric—improving upon the experience of the patient’s care, stay, and comfort. The health center’s atrium lobby increases connectivity to the inpatient unit complete with all-private beds, as well as the hospital’s office building. Wrapped around the lobby’s windows, Blendz Patina 131’s timeworn texture pairs beautifully with the Center’s natural wood and brick architecture, fostering a sense of connection between patients and the surrounding environment. Designed with a custom rocky pattern as a nod to the mountains, the intricate solid-core aluminum panels cast beautiful shadows along the curved atrium floor.
