hello My name is Sarah McCormick and I am an enthusiastic and conscientious student looking to continue my education in the fields of architecture, design and development. I am passionate about the built environment and how it impacts health and well-being. My career goal is to design and develop architecture that optimizes health and wellness within a community. My dream is to establish a multi-disciplinary design-build firm that emphasizes collaboration and the common good. So far I have most enjoyed my work in healthcare, residential and religious architecture but I look forward to exploring other projects as well. I am looking to develop a long term relationship with an institution that shares my same values and will show me first hand how professionals in the design and development industries are able to positively impact their communities.

The project is a 300k square foot hospital facilitiy in coordination with an existing Cooks medical campus in Denton, Texas.

The concept for Cook’s Women and Children’s hospital begins with the design of patient spaces. Pediatric inpatient rooms use interactive technology and imaginative design elements to revitalize children’s spirits and a distinct living space restores normalcy for parents. This continues in the hallways and public spaces. The entire patient floor is a giant playground with restorative grown-up spaces tucked away throughout.
