Discovery Meets Recovery in New Cedars-Sinai’s Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion Designed by HOK
Date:9/25/2013

ieve LEED Gold the building features efficient mechanical systems, a photovoltaic system and high-performance façades that to respond to environmental conditions. The exterior skin has high-performance glass and perforated metal panels that reduce heat gain and glare while providing a comfortable interior environment. On the east and west façades, a double-skin of glazing and sun screens of vertical glass fins mitigate solar gain and glare from the low-angled light. On the southern exposure, the recessed windows and light shelves compose a restrained façade. On the north face, at the building prow, floor-to-ceiling windows offer stunning views of the Hollywood Hills and provide natural light for the boardroom and other business functions.

At lower levels, the building conveys a civic sensibility with a natural limestone base that creates a plinth for the glass structure above. The limestone forms an entrance canopy that leads to the ground floor lobby and simulation lab, which are fronted with large windows that provide light and views to the outside.

On the top two floors, which are dedicated to research, a connecting stair opens to a gathering space and encourages collaboration among physicians, researchers and educators. Located adjacent to the translational research laboratories, this grand “living room” attracts researchers seeking space for quiet concentration or casual meetings in a break area.

HOK designed the outpatient environment to help patients feel comfortable. The space is light-filled and easy to navigate. The single waiting room in the double-height main lobby at the second floor plaza level provides a sense of orientation. Many of the outpatient services — including intake, imaging, pharmacy and a café — are just steps away from this lobby.

Materials and details throughout the public spaces promote the quality and care that characterize the Cedars-Sinai brand. From the Jerusalem limestone in th
