Our mission was to aid way finding, create a palette to differentiate buildings, and appeal to a broad number of personal tastes.
Upon completion of the painting, we received several emails from the users. In fact the first compliments that came in were addressing one of the most challenged spaces, the windowless, basement hallways of the Medical Sciences.
Subject: RE: MSB Basement Paint
“It really opens up the basement and makes it look bigger than ever. Nice and soothing.”
“We love the new paint colors in the basement level of MSB!”
The UCSF Corridor Project had no architectural improvements, and no lighting enhancements. The application of a sunny color palette did radically change the experience of the hallway.
You can’t afford to ignore the value add of color – it can transform a users experience.
