Good Samaritan Children’s Therapy Unit


Designed to emulate the shape of Noah’s Ark, the Dr. Donald & Beret Mott Children's Center provides an apt metaphor for children and their families—a safe haven as they navigate difficult health challenges. The 42,000 square-foot, two-story facility houses exam and therapy rooms, a hydrotherapy pool, research labs, and related spaces for children requiring physical therapy, rehabilitation, and other developmental services. The exposed, curved and sloping wood structure used throughout the building provides an emphasis on welcoming and uplifting children of all ages. This project was featured in Building Design & Construction (August 2001) and Architectural Record (July 2002).
