Annie will be acting as Visiting Critic at the SCI-Arc Undergrad Thesis and Spring Show this Friday and Saturday. 

Sixteen agencies – ranging from the American Heart Association to a Boyle Heights community garden – offer a wide range of preventative health care and social services on the ground floor of the former hospital.  The center is the first of its kind in Los Angeles County and is designed to improve public health and keep people out of the emergency room…”

Annie and Karena are in NYC scoping out the Studio Museum of Harlem. So excited to be working with Charles Gaines on his July exhibition. Dense + serious art-making processes that float off walls.

The Wellness Center at Historic General Hospital

New Reception Desk. We reused old terrazzo partitions from the dismantled doctors restroom to make the desk countertop

Typical new corridor - new asymmetric tectum soffit and exposed ceiling lit from sidewall light slot. Linoleum floors. Existing cast terrazzo wainscot is both existing and historic so we tried to maintain as much as possible.

New Demonstration Kitchen waiting for protection to be removed from all the stainless steel surfaces

New Wellness Center Lobby is in the old Hospital Pharmacy which was not accessible to the public, so most people never knew this double-height space even existed. We’ve changed that.

This was the old Therapy Pool Courtyard which is another area that even the Hospital staff did not know about before….

and after. We’ve filled the pool (no easy feat to get approved) and now everyone will know about it.

Grand Opening of the Wellness Center at the Historic General Hospital in Boyle Heights is on Saturday, March 15, 2014. Open to everyone.

Join us on MARCH 15th from 11AM - 2PM at the GRAND OPENING of our Wellness Center project at the Historic General Hospital. 

Formed by a partnership between First District Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina and The California Endowment, The Wellness Center at the Historic General Hospital will house like-minded nonprofit organizations that have the vision of making Boyle Heights a healthier community. Its tenants will provide services that strengthen the efforts of forward-thinking philanthropists, foundations, activists and organizations to make the world a better place.

Organizations sharing space realize cost efficiencies and increased efficiency and gain access to new ideas, potential partners and expanded opportunities.

The Wellness Center at the Historic General Hospital will offer a comprehensive solution to the nonprofit workspace challenge that provides a triple bottom line advantage: Economic, Social and Environmental.
