Project Description

Toogood to be True

The Emily program once again partnered with LiLu to create a distinctive environment for healing, this time for its Toogood building in St. Paul. From an old industrial building surfaced a restored space expertly designed to enhance the counseling of adolescents with eating disorders. A custom color scheme balances warm and cool colors to emphasize the transition from one area to another. Color blocking and large-scale carpet patterns contrast the rough texture, scale and overwhelming presence of brick walls. Patterns, finishes and artwork appeal to the youthful spirit.
