While the term “orthopedics” may have a cold, mechanical connotation, the designers of the Summit Orthopedics surgery center in Eagan, Minn., wanted to create an environment that was anything but technical. With patients flying in to the renowned clinic from across the country, the goal was to create an inviting space that would enhance patient experience and perhaps even hasten their recovery by encouraging healing. For this project, TCP’s Line Series was installed to provide both beauty and stable support to patients, while the exterior of the building features TCP’s aluminum-framed Tensiline stainless cable railing.
