Staten Island University Hospital

Staten Island, New York

New hospitals enhance their surrounding communities not only by accommodating the latest healthcare practices and procedures, but by offering contextually appropriate exteriors and maximizing the potential of their sites.  The firm’s design for a new 442-bed replacement hospital for Staten Island University Hospital reduces the apparent scale of a very large structure by orienting the building at a 45-degree angle to its site.  By placing the building at the north end of the site and orienting the main entry toward the community, the design improved the relationships between the institution and the neighborhood.
