This 45,000-square-foot fit out of six existing floors of a building within walking distance of Brooklyn Hospital’s main campus in Brooklyn, N.Y., creates a new home for 20 of its physician practice groups. The Brooklyn Hospital Center, Physicians Pavilion opened in May 2020 with a design goal of ensuring those physicians are able to operate as efficiently as possible.

To that end, the EwingCole design team worked to analyze patient volume data to calculate requirements for exam rooms and then created a stacking diagram to show how the space could be shared, inspiring how practices are grouped within the building’s triangular floor plate.

Layouts were adapted to fit program needs on each floor, with views optimized throughout. In addition to the efficiencies gained, the jury also lauded the $16 million project’s aesthetics, defined by a base palette of wood tones and light neutrals with bold accents introduced via paint, upholstery, and wallcoverings. A hospitality feel was further delivered through furnishings ranging from side tables and ottomans to a charging bar to shelving for books and other entertainment.
