ARCH 705: Advanced Graduate Architecture Design Gallery: A Mixed-use "COVID Resistant" Outpatient Clinic, Elderly Care Center and 55+ Homeless Housing

Healing Center Surrounding a Natural Courtyard

The main focus of the project is to create a place that does not look like an institution, but a home. A family-like atmosphere can be created by maintaining the elements of daily habits in residents’ lives. This healing center is also a place to protect the Nevin neighborhood.
The healing center includes three buildings, a four-story nursing home, a four-story set-back outpatient clicic and homeless house, each of which enjoys views of the surrounding green spaces and gardens within the site. In the middle, there is an inner courtyard garden surrounding an open but clearly defined environment, providing a safe and reliable environment for residents and patients.
