East River by: skelastic
Many of New York City’s largest hospitals and health centers have closed their doors in recent years. A new healthcare facility that will be an assisted-living community for low-income and market-rate tenants is planned on the East River in the Lower East Side. The National Center for Palliative Care Innovation is being designed by FXFowle and will focus on “relieving terminally ill patients’ suffering with a holistic approach that includes psychological, physical, and multi-faith spiritual approaches”. The facade of the building appears in the form of a 16-story high, 180,000 square foot wave. The firm included green roofs and semi-public passageways cut through the bottom floors. FXFowle is seeking LEED platinum certification for this new healthcare and research project.
