Drawing on industry research indicating that good design in medical centers influences well-being and a heightened quality of patient care, Ballinger and Polshek Partnership Architects designed this 330,000-square-foot, 15-floor clinical facility for a New York-based university teaching hospital.
Natural finishes and earth-tone colors create a spa-like feel in this award winning project, while large windows offer contemplative skyline views. KnollStudio® furnishings are featured extensively here in waiting areas, conference rooms, libraries, diagnostic centers and public areas, while the Knoll AutoStrada® system was selected for staff offices. At this medical college, state-of-the-art technology combines with contemporary and mid-century furnishings from Knoll.
In the library Barcelona® chairs, Divina lounge seating and Tulip tables by KnollStudio® create an elegant and relaxed reading room. Also there, a Propeller® table unites with Flat Bar Brno chairs to create an upright reading area or conference table. In a waiting area at the hospital Krefeld lounge seating and tables provide comfort with a classic aesthetic. Finally, a doctor's private office is outfitted with the Knoll AutoStrada® system, a Tulip table, Life® chair and Brno side chairs.
