Since its original opening in 1958, Washington Hospital Center has been regarded as a renowned clinical, teaching, and research facility with a primary focus on the utmost patient care. When they chose to remodel and update their emergency room facilities in the fall of 2009, the vision and design of the project clearly reflected this same patient focus. To create a comfortable and calming, stress-reducing emergency room space, 264 Traxon 1PXL Cove Light XR RGB, a slim profile fixture, were easily hidden in recessed areas of the ER ceiling. Additionally, Traxon’s customizable Graze XB-9 RGB was installed discreetly between two etched Corian half-walls from Evans & Paul, illuminating them with a rich, even RGB wash. An e:cue system consisting of two Butler, one Butler XT, and one Glass Touch T6R, provides smooth and reliable control for the entire installation, which features gradual color-changing undulations and long timed fades from daytime to nighttime, emulating the course of the sun throughout the day as triggered by an astronomical clock. The entire environment, created in part by Traxon Technologies and e:cue, communicates safety and calmness, thus easing ER patient stress.
