addabbo family health center
far rockaway, nY
The three-story building is designed to create a strong relationship with the surrounding residential area and natural seaside environment. The facility is comprised of six departments: Adult Medical, OB/GYN, Mental Health, Pediatrics, Nutrition, and Dental. The center also offers the community after-hours use of seminar spaces and provides a circulation path that can be secured from the rest of the building. Each department is defined by its own functional requirements and unique identity. A two-story glass wall marries the main entrance to the warmly lit lobby. Inside, accent colors in both the waiting areas and the corresponding exam rooms distinguish each department. The overall design intent is to create an inviting facility that serves as a new community focal point, revitalizes the area, and provides an anchor for future development.
