Tull had the privilege of working with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, on two distinct projects: interactive welcome, journey, and discovery walls in the Kay Research and Care Center and glass entrances and partitions in the Advanced Research Center. Both projects focused on inspiring patients and staff to live and work from a place of authenticity, gratitude, and determination.
Tull worked with St. Jude to help them execute their vision for interactive welcome, journey, and discovery walls on each floor of the Kay Research and Care Center, a facility dedicated to deadly disease research and patient and family care management. Each floor in the Kay Center features a welcome wall consisting of a glass mural that introduces visitors to that floor’s specific theme. Once visitors pass through the entryway, the journey wall–an electronically interactive mural made of thirteen glass panels–begins. Throughout the floor, visitors will also find four discovery walls featuring light and sound enhancements as well as glass touch screens.
In the Advanced Research Center, Tull worked with St. Jude to help them complete one of the largest strategic advancements in the facility’s history. In an effort to recruit and retain the medical field’s brightest minds, St. Jude wanted the space to be open, interactive, and conducive to collaboration. Tull helped the St. Jude team bring their aesthetic concepts to life with all-glass openings, glass partitions, and nearly invisible smoke baffles. After the project’s completion, St. Jude’s Scientific Director and Executive Vice President Dr. James Morgan said, “Every aspect of the Advanced Research Center has been customized to inspire and support researchers who seek to lead and collaborate.”
