Chelsea District Health Center

Under the Mayor’s Design Excellence Initiative, SYA is responsible for the gut renovation of this Art-Deco era public community health center. The $17M project successfully accommodates new, airy, state-of-the-art healthcare clinics into a landmark quality building with small floor plates, low floor-to-floor heights and, obsolete infrastucture. In order to create a more welcoming facility, the interiors are planned to maximize views and natural light, making the most of the building’s unique location within a public park. Curved wood ceilings and natural finish floors combine with hi-tech finishes to evoke a state-of-the-art medical pavilion in a park. Park-facing walls are clad in a tile pattern inspired by the park’s sycamore trees. A new glass-enclosed stair creates expansive views and activates the building. The scope includes exterior renovations, a new accessible entry and all new infrastructure. A LEED Gold rating is anticipated.
