The City of Lincoln contracted Erickson Sullivan Architects to remodel the Lincoln Building for the relocation of the Department of Aging. Erickson Sullivan’s plans utilized the high ceiling space and open mezzanine to create an open plan on the first floor, efficient office spaces on the second, and incorporate offices and storage space into the lower level and the once bank vault. Erickson Sullivan worked closely with the owner and City of Lincoln personnel to renovate this unique historic building into an efficient, adaptive reuse of the once-abandoned space.
OUR WORK / COMMUNITY

Alexis Verzal Children’s Rehabilitation Hospital at Madonna
Winner of the 2011 AIA Nebraska People’s Choice Award for Excellence in Interior Design
The focus of this project was to bring nature indoors as a healing tool, transforming this wing of the medical facility into a colorful, playful, and vibrant space for the children. Incorporating the safety, physical therapy requirements, and sensory stimulation of pediatric patients into all design aspects was of utmost importance.
Madonna St. James Addition
Madonna’s St. James Addition, consisting of 162 beds and three stories, was designed, and constructed to blend with the architectural style of the existing building and created interior courtyards to maximize efficiency and daylight opportunities. At the time of construction, the main floor level was left unfinished for future opportunities.
Madonna Transitional Care Unit Addition
A 9,000 SF patient room addition to the Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital expanded the existing facility, providing six new private patient rooms, a day room, kitchenette space, lower-level space for hospital storage, and an enclosed outdoor courtyard for patients. The exterior of the addition complements the existing building while tying to the overall building design.
The Monarch Hospice Facility
The Monarch Hospice Care Facility is dedicated to short-term care of the terminally ill, and includes eight private bedrooms with a communal kitchen, living room, and gathering room. Located within a residential neighborhood, the facility is designed to be a very comfortable, homey environment for those too ill to spend their remaining days in their own home. Design features include a variety of residential roof forms, well-landscaped yards, a vaulted ceiling living room, and a large central fireplace.
Madonna Assisted Living
As an innovative program of Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital, Woods House was designed to allow younger adults (ages 19 to 59) with severe disabilities maximum independence. Located on the Madonna campus, it consists of eight living units with separate storage areas and a commons area (including a living room, dining room, kitchen, laundry room, and covered patio).
Madonna Family Housing
It is soothing to have the comforts of a home during stressful times, an objective of these family space developments. This small, four-unit building can house families of patients while their loved ones recover at Madonna.
