Located near New York City's Theater District, NYU Langone- Ambulatory Care West Side brings the expertise of NYU Langone Medical Center to a thriving and diverse community on the west side of Manhattan. In providing care in the surrounding communities through strategically located multi-specialty ambulatory care practices, the Medical Center is able to bring world-class care to the surrounding communities. At the inception of the project, NYU occupied three of eight floors in the building. Gertler & Wente Architects was asked to program and design for a full fit-out on the 8th floor. The project consists of over 5,000 sf for orthopedic family practice including 12 exam rooms, a Siemens diagnostic x-ray room, support space and staff/doctor’s offices. The main waiting/reception area has open unobstructed views to the Manhattan skyline with large windows that allow sunlight into the space. A custom-designed ceiling takes advantage of large floor to floor heights while emphasizing the loft like feel of this formerly industrial space.
