The NYU Emergency Department was designed as an addition to Tisch Hospital, located on 1st Ave. The building provides separate entrances for ambulance traffic and the public. The interior contains a waiting area for patients as well as medical emergency spaces. On the roof of the addition, (2) air-handling units are planned to service the adjacent building.
A screenwall, composed of backlit etched-glass panels, hides the mechanical units from the street while announcing the hospital’s new point of entry. The translucent box sits on a stone wall, which reaches outside the building to separate ambulance traffic from the pedestrian flow.
