Cedars-Sinai, Playa Vista Physician Office & Urgent Care
Architect: ZGF Architects LLP
Location: Playa Vista, California
Category C: Renovations/Remodeled: Primarily built within existing hospital or clinical space, or adaptive reuse of an existing building to a healthcare use
The Playa Vista clinic prototypes a new model of community-based care for Cedars-Sinai, and the design reflects the culture and aesthetic of its “Silicon Beach” neighborhood. New technology and innovative care models are fully integrated into the hyper-efficient, yet flexible floor plans, which are cloaked with an upscale palette of rich color and texture. Floor-to-ceiling windows along the southern façade flood the layered spaces with natural light, where custom, hospitality-style furnishings and finishes were developed using healthcare-compliant materials. The result is a welcoming, healing environment for all.
"A well designed efficient clinic open team center approach for staff. For patients, clear circulation and close in ‘living room’ waiting in each cluster, kudos for not creating the usual impersonal large waiting rooms! Nicely planned staff areas." ~ Jury statement
