Children’s Safety Center | Springdale, AR


The Children’s Safety Center is perched on a sprawling plot of land along Gene George Boulevard in Springdale, Arkansas. As the sun sets each day the center transforms into a radiant, gentle glow of handprints casting onto the façade of the building as a symbolic testament to remembrance for those who came before and solidarity for those currently seeking recovery letting all know they are not alone. The design team evoked the prominence of the CSC by elongating the front façade along Gene George Boulevard. From North to South a gentle angle provides a compassionate and engaging embrace. At the vertex of the angle the main entry carries the wood slat donor wall from the exterior façade into the lobby.

The lobby serves as the nexus between the primary functions and houses multiple waiting rooms and an in-kind shop for families. As you enter the lobby space the wood donor walls anchors the wall opposite the reception desk adorning major donor names burned into each wood slat. A captivating collection of colored glass suspended from the ceiling interacts with the natural light streaming through the lobby windows, casting a soft glow on varying wood and glass tones.
