HMN Architects completed a 5,000 SF relocation and renovation of the Children’s Mercy Hospital gift shop in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. The new area; including retail, storage, office and circulation spaces, has been relocated to a more prominent location within the hospital for the convenience of patients, staff, and visitors.

One of the primary design elements of the gift shop is the ceiling. It is open to structure and arrayed with a system of white suspended fins, which are lit from above by programmable, vibrantly colored LED’s. This eye-catching feature was developed in collaboration with BRR Architecture and Dimensional Innovations. The new design and location for the Children’s Mercy gift shop has proven successful in improving the visibility, enticement and allure of this service within the hospital, improving both patronage and revenue.
