This holistic wellness center addresses the healthcare and social needs of an economically challenged, predominantly African-American population in an urban neighborhood on Atlanta’s west side. Prominently sited at the intersection of Interstates 20 and 285, the building borders Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, a major arterial thoroughfare, and is easily accessible by car, public transportation, or on foot.
By collocating a primary care clinic, behavioral health clinic, childcare facilities, a dental clinic, and workforce community center under one roof, the design makes visits convenient and economical for patients. The spatial organization, anchored by a central, two-story lobby and connecting stair, clearly guides visitors to the facility's various departments.
