daSILVA Architects, In association with Pei Cobb Freed & Partners
Architects, designed a new LEED Gold certified cardiac care building
for NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. The project was part of
the Hospital’s larger strategic plan to expand and widely improve
ambulatory care services.
The new 125,000 SF five-story structure links two buildings,
Milstein Hospital and Irving Pavilion, and creates a new entrance
that improves public access and way finding. An additional 40,000
SF was renovated to connect the three buildings. Our challenge
was to effectively and sensitively add to a successful existing
institution on a constrained site while celebrating the underlying
humanistic purpose of the enterprise.
The building includes a conference center, outpatient diagnostic
and imaging suites, and multi-story atrium with four sky-bridge
levels connecting the new building to the existing building to
maintain a continuous campus. It houses a new outpatient imaging
department, expanded invasive cardiology and outpatient
surgery units, group practice units, dialysis and an ICU. The design
fuses the hospital’s progressive vision with its long-established
reputation of excellence; it will shape the public’s impression of
NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital for years to come.
