Ronald McDonald House of Connecticut
New Haven, Connecticut | Hospitality
The Ronald McDonald House of Connecticut is a temporary "home away from home" for families of children who are being treated at nearby hospitals and healthcare facilities. The design-build team of this project wanted to break through barriers of traditional EIFS and create a state-of-the-art building. By using the design flexibility of EIFS in a variety of ways, this project has a fun and whimsical-like façade and its unique appearance is both uplifting and pleasing to the eye, important in keeping the spirits high of the visiting families.
