Hope Hospice Lehigh is a 24-bed hospice house that is much more than a typical hospice. This 42,000 square-foot facility offers palliative care in private suites, Hope Select Care (a Senior PACE center), and large teams for Hope “Support a Home” care, and provides bereavement and counseling services. The interior design team created spaces with a home-like atmosphere. Common spaces for the families include family rooms, kitchen and living room, as well as a chapel, laundry facility, children’s play room and café.
This building has been awarded Silver Level LEED accreditation by the USGBC (US Green Building Council). The interior design team contributed to this rating by specifying much of the interiors with sustainable fabrics, low-VOC and non-formaldehyde furnishings. The smallest details were not overlooked, as even the wood for the artwork is FSC rated (Forest Stewardship Council). It is important to PK Studios to reduce carbon emissions and energy usage wherever possible.
