Scottish Rite Clinic

Duluth’s Scottish Rite Clinic is pioneering new ideas in therapeutic design for the treatment of language disorders. From programming through design, DSGW planned the clinic with strategies that have been tested and proven to support the work of Speech/Language Pathologists.

There are two schools of thought on the use of interior color and visual excitement in the treatment of communications disorders. You can keep everything neutral so kids aren’t over-stimulated when they enter their therapy sessions. Or, you can introduce the “real world” of colors and action that they will encounter throughout their lives. With the guidance of Scottish Rite Clinic’s Clinical Director, we achieved a blend of both.

Scottish Rite Clinic is designed for the whole family. The idea is to create a stage for learning to communicate with others at the Clinic—and then for kids to take these lessons home to practice in daily life. The overall effect can be life-changing.
