This new 12,000-square-foot building on the Queens General Hospital campus will serve as the division’s new home, as well as the EMS district office. The low-rise, cantilevered design maximizes the efficiency of the sloped site and mediates the disparate elevations of the surrounding neighbourhood structures. Glass and rubber exterior surfaces create a crisp, open appearance.
The Art Commission of the City of New York honoured this project with an Excellence in Design award in 2006. This project is part of the NYC Department of Design and Construction Design Excellence Programme and a DQI project for the City.
