Ramski & Company performed interior design for the new Ronald MacDonald House, Nemours at Lake Nona in concert with Schenkel Shultz Architecture and DPR Construction. Orlando is only one of 6 cities in the nation with 3 Ronald McDonald House locations. The house hope is to provide a home away from home for up to 39 families at completion. This first phase provides 15 guest rooms with infrastructure for the future 3rd floor buildout and a Phase 2 building extending the guest room corridors at the west end of the site.
For Ramski & Company this is the third Ronald McDonald House project assist in Orlando. The Lake Nona Nemours facility represents two years of community service to this special organization and has provided a great deal of satisfaction as the house has surpassed expectations. The new guest rooms have successfully employed lessons learned to create beautiful, easy to maintain guest environments featuring a special donor art program to make each guest space unique and special.
Our job as project interior designers was to create a beautiful, durable interior for public spaces and guest suites, and to encourage participation and donation from the community and orchestrate a coordinated project. We were able to specify quality and in most cases obtain special price reductions, with both in kind and product donations to ensure budgets could be met and quality would be maintained throughout the bidding and building process.
