For its first center in Queens, NY, Planned Parenthood sought a facility that was a bold expression of its commitment to state-of-the-art care for all, provided an excellent patient experience, and welcomed one of the most diverse communities in the world. The building’s contemporary design contrasts with its brownstone neighbors, establishing itself as a welcoming and important community institution. The simply-planned, sleek, and light-filled interiors are uplifting and easy to navigate, reducing patient stress. A bold color system aids in orientation for the diverse users and brings spatial delight throughout.
