At the Children's Bereavement Center of South Texas’ San Antonio location, a 76-foot-long, 54-inch-wide hallway was created with two 70-square-foot rectangular landings at each end for the main entrances of the newly-remodeled facility. The goal was to depict a beautiful mosaic woodland pathway to create a sense of wonder and beauty and reflect the emotional journey of healing for each family. The whimsical pathway begins with small pieces of broken tiles, symbolizing the fragility of the children entering the program and gradually progresses to larger stronger pieces as the path continues -- symbolizing the healing process. Along the sides of the path, mosaic murals were created to incorporate various flora and fauna to tie in with the full wall painted murals to come. Butterflies were also included to signify the bereavement center’s program logo.
Cox Tile of San Antonio, TX, was recognized as the Commercial Grand Prize Winner in the National Contractors Association’s (NTCA) 2022 Five-Star Contractor Project of the Year Awards. Additional details of the whimsical woodland path can be found here:
