Liberty Medical Center / Front Studio Architects

Designed by Front Studio Architects, the Liberty Medical Center, a 20,000 sqf, 4-story medical office building on Liberty Avenue, brings a strong presence to the street that engages both users and observers of the architecture.  The architects carefully considered how this new construction could become a link between the existing varying scales within the neighborhood.  Follow the break for more photographs of this design.

Using large architectural fragments, the changing scales of the building bridges the two scales already present in the urban context; the seven story hospital across the street with the small houses alongside the building and behind on the hill.

  • munter roe

    Totally out of context.

  • Scott

    Frank Ghery infill – but slightly toned back.

  • majchers

    Great infill. Brings freshness to otherwise outdated (if not stinky) streetscape. Well done.

  • Archie

    Good use of interspatiality.
