healthcare beautifully lean NBBJ implements Continuous Performance Improvement to create a lean design rich in human experience for Seattle Children’s Bellevue Clinic and Surgery Center By Sheri Olson, FAIA • Photography by Benjamin Benschneider and Sean Airhart of NBBJ The facade of primarily glass and a screened outdoor café and porch (top) help to make the Seattle Children’s Bellevue Clinic and Surgery Center inviting and approachable for families with young children. In the surgery waiting area, tinted window blocks and furnishings inject doses of vibrant color. The steel-framed, mesh-screened porch (opposite) houses an outdoor café and offers views to the facility’s green roofs and landscape. 68 contract october 2011 Photos by Benjamin Benschneider
