Each year we look forward to a fun night of celebrating excellent design, food and friends. This year’s 37th annual ASID Design Excellence Awards were held at The Stave Room at American Spirit Works on Thursday, May 4th. Our very own “Scuber” driver, otherwise known as Alison’s husband, Scott, chauffeured us to and from the event.
LeVino Jones received both the Silver and Gold Award for the Contract Healthcare under 10,000 square feet category.
Sandy Springs Pediatrics received the Silver award in the Healthcare under 10,000 square feet category. LeVino Jones incorporated a “sophisticated treehouse” design which delights children and families and increases efficiency for patient flow and staff productivity.

Eastside Medical Center/Women’s Center received the Gold award. LeVino Jones teamed up with Zanardo Architects to completely refresh the existing Labor/Delivery/Recovery and Mother/Baby rooms. Work was also done in the Waiting Area and Staff Lounge. For more information on this project, click this link
Thank you to all our clients and consultants for helping us create award-winning spaces!
During our office renovation, we designed an entry wall to feature our logo. We wanted a clean, sophisticated look that wouldn’t break the budget. ASI wood panels did just that. The Sculptural Collection features a primed MDF panel in 10 different patterns. The product is sustainable with no added urea-formaldehyde.

K.Chavon Designs clears up the common misconception between design and decorating. Follow the link below to read the full article and see how design and decorating are quite different.
“It is said that Americans spend 90% of their time indoors. 90% of your life is spent inside of a structure that had to be designed and completed with human behavioral patterns in mind while also considering environmental factors, ergonomics, health and safety factors, building code regulations, ADA, and much more all fitting together to create a space that will “look nice” but most importantly support the well-being of several occupants in a functional manner. This means that even the finishes and furnishings that are considered for a space have to be compliant to several health and safety regulations and serve a more important purpose beyond “looking good.”
This Christmas season we volunteered at the Sandy Springs Community Assistance Center (CAC) to sort toys that would end up going to families in need. The CAC is right in our backyard and serves the people of Sandy Springs and Dunwoody. They help those in need by providing food, clothing, shelter, and educational classes to teach skills required to obtain a job.
Their mission is to “bring together the Sandy Springs and Dunwoody communities, to provide compassionate assistance to neighbors in need by providing financial support, helping to meet basic needs and promoting self-reliance.”
Our group was able to sort through donated toys and separate them for families by age, gender,etc. We enjoyed being a small part of making a child’s Christmas brighter.

Each year, Specialty Tile hosts an industry night of designing and constructing an entire town made of gingerbread! This year’s theme was Gingertown London: A British Invasion. Architecture and design firms buy a plot in the town and show off their best gingerbread architecture, frosting and candy constructing skills. The $5,000 raised from the plot purchases was donated to The Lifecycle Building Center and The Covenant House.
On December 6th, the LVJ elves headed to Gingertown London at the Specialty Tile Buckhead Showroom. They filled their cups with an assortment of candies and their piping bags with frosting. The designer’s space planned and constructed “Twiggy’s Bon Bon Beauty Salon” and even included the first gummy bear customers in the salon chairs. The salon is ADA accessible, sustainable with recycling bins in place, and lit on the inside.
Two of our favorite reps, Tracy Roan with Patcraft and Maureen Gundacker with Koroseal, sponsored our plot this year. Each plot comes together to form an amazing Gingertown that gets more impressive each year! Thank you to Specialty Tile for hosting another great event!

The annual Healthcare Design Expo + Conference is the leading healthcare design conference in the industry. This year the conference was in Houston, Texas from November 12th-15th. The conference is devoted to educating designers, architects and healthcare staff on the impact of the built environment. It focuses on highlighting innovative design solutions and introducing the latest and greatest industry products. Attendees can earn up to 23 CEU credits during the four-day conference.
This year, three LeVino Jones designers attended the conference and enjoyed networking with fellow specialists and attending classes focusing on patient safety, infection control, the patient experience, building innovations, evidence based design and code advancements.
Each year we look forward to the Healthcare Design Conference and are excited to implement the latest trends and strategies learned from the 2016 Conference!
We are proud to have collaborated with Kwalu on the award winning Caterina Collection!
“The collection was designed by Alison Jones and Kathy Isogai, LeVino Jones Medical Interiors, Inc. Alison explains, “We wanted to design a seating and occasional table collection with a fresh aesthetic for Kwalu that could be used throughout a hospital or outpatient facility: waiting areas, chapel, clinical spaces, exam rooms, dining areas, administration offices and medical offices. Additionally, this collection includes a care-specific Behavioral Medicine chair and bariatric option of the same design. The entire collection meets and exceeds the rigorous standards for infection control, cleanability, sustainability and durability required for a healthcare environment.”

One of our favorite events of the year is Bowling for Boobs, a breast cancer awareness fundraiser! This year, we gathered our mouse ears, bobby socks and pink bows to transform into the LVJ Rack-it-ear’s. This was the 9th Annual Bowling for Boobs event sponsored by Illuminations. http://www.illumco.com/bfb-save-the-date-2016/ 100% of all monies donated went directly to Susan G. Komen and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Our bowling skills seem to be improving each year! Just imagine if we practiced more than once a year!
Thanks to a generous gift from Wendy and Keith Wellin this 5,300 square foot Specialty Center at MUSC in Charleston, SC is complete and occupied. The husband-wife namesake donors were both clinic patients and survivors.
LeVino Jones Medical Interiors worked with the donor family, architect and University Hospital to create a facility that focused on patient-centered care and privacy as well as a dignified journey through cancer treatment.
This project was awarded an ASID Bronze Design Excellence Award in May, 2016.
