5. USA Women’s and Children’s Hospital Patient Tower

USA Women's and Children's Hospital - Terrazzo Design

Take it from me. Hospitals are not fun. At all costs, I’m sure people would try to avoid hospitals altogether. But that is not the case. However, by incorporating an interesting design that includes swirls and waves representing an ocean, the terrazzo floor can take patients into a new world. Behind every corner is an elaborate ocean-themed design, which can help alleviate any anxiety about having to see the doctor.
