The Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion (AHSP) is one of the first translational research facilities of its kind allowing outpatient care and research facilities to exist contiguously, enabling a new level of collaboration between physicians and researchers. Housing the Neuroscience and Heart Institutes, the LEED Gold facility is one of the West Coast’s largest and most advanced diagnostic, translational research and treatment facilities. The building is situated on a public edge of the Cedars-Sinai campus adjacent to its primary circulation spine. Due to this high profile location, the AHSP creates a new symbolic entry to the medical center. A gentle, curving façade invites visitors and provides a welcoming public face to the surrounding community.

"Interior public areas are elegantly detailed with enough articulation to give it human scale, wood accents and warm toned furnishings add warmth. Daylight is brought in judiciously to create uplifting clinical areas."  ~ Jury statement
