Colorado Springs, CO — The International Interior Design Association (IIDA) Rocky Mountain Chapter recognized RTA’s projects for Craig Hospital and Ignacio High School for Achievement in Interior Design.
Craig Hospital –IIDA Winner, GIVE Category
This project garnered significant recognition for creative and meticulous phasing. Craig was able to continue operations while the facility renovations took place, with 100% bed capacity and continued inpatient and outpatient treatment services, while minimizing noise and disruption for Craig’s critically injured patients.
“We had a collaborative design partner in SmithgroupJJR Interior Designer Scott Steffes, and the whole project team did amazing work on this transformative project,” stated Paul Reu, Associate, RTA Architects. “Craig Hospital is the type of project that exemplifies why I enjoy healthcare architecture; designing spaces that enhance the healing environment for staff, community members, and especially the patients and family members that Craig serves so well.”
Ignacio High School – IIDA Merit Award Winner, LEARN Category
Ignacio High School aspired to renew community pride and reflect the region’s multi-cultural heritage through the renovation of the existing junior high and high school buildings. Jurors noted RTA’s use of large scale graphics of ceremonial costumes, Southwest color, pattern, and sacred geometries are incorporated into the materials and architecture of the building, all of which reflect the multi-cultural heritage of the Ignacio community.
