Reside Health is a new type of amenity space housed in the 60-story Carnegie Hall Tower in Midtown Manhattan. It is the first of its kind in New York City and expands the possibilities of tenant amenities in office buildings for wellness beyond fitness centers and outdoor terraces. Reside Health fills a gap to better serve tenants with immediate and convenient access to medical care.
A holistic approach.
Our scope was to reimagine stereotypical medical and urgent care spaces to create a warm, relaxing, and inviting comprehensive healthcare space for patients. Inspired by the architectural vocabulary and musicality of nearby Carnegie Hall, movement, curvature, and the comfort of soft tones inform the design. The curved lighting feature serves as visual wayfinding leading patients through the space. Biophilia as well as natural textures and colors create a tranquil and relaxng atmosphere. Artwork is intentionally placed in patient areas, contributing to a more holistic approach to health and wellbeing than traditional medical environments.
Built to evolve.
The entire space was designed to be resilient over time, expanding and contracting with the needs of Reside Health as well as the building tenants. Each room is capable of multiple functions. For example, an exam room can be reconfigured into an office space and an office space into a private resting area, and vice versa. Medical supplies, a small pantry, and patient records are hidden in storage recessed into a paneled wall of natural wood to maintain a seamless, clean, and open environment.
