Sutter Diagnostic & Women’s Imaging

Sky Factory as Designers

Sutter Diagnostic & Women's Imaging in Roseville, California, is a comprehensive imaging center providing general diagnostic and specialized women’s imaging services with a full range of scanning technologies. Central to the owners and designers concept was to create a patient-centered, spa-like atmosphere. To this end, the interior design features warm colors and soft textures, daylighting in modality rooms, nature art, and extensive use of Luminous Virtual Windows and Luminous SkyCeilings as effective, therapeutic illusions of nature.


Designer Jenny Reece, of healthcare architects Boulder Associates, incorporated curved perimeters for two of the large SkyCeilings, one in a lounge-like patient changing area and another in a CT suite. These custom SkyCeiling configurations, with their gently curving perimeters, transform the spaces into open, nature-filled rooms, providing the calming benefits of real sky views.


The design earned the Jury Award for the Best Product + Healthcare at the 2014 Architizer A+ Awards, held at the Highline Stage in New York City. It is a beautiful example of applied biophilic design for healthcare interiors that seek to enhance the patient experience (PX).


Material Used :

1. Luminous SkyCeiling – Virtual Skylight (6500K) – Custom Shape

2. Classic 2‘ X 2‘ (60cm X 60cm) SkyTiles (image tiles)

3. Classic 2.54cm architectural reveal (tile elevator)
