Brigham Building for the Future Proposal / NBBJ

Brigham Building for the Future Proposal / NBBJ

Brigham and Women’s Hospital just broke ground last week on the Brigham Building for the Future, a 620,000 square-foot translational research and clinical facility designed by NBBJ. Located on the hospital’s Longwood campus, the 11-story project will house eight floors of research laboratories, three floors of clinics, a state-of-the-art imaging facility, social spaces, and a 400-car garage, along with associated site improvements. More images and architects' description after the break.

The facility aims to advance patient care by furthering translational research, collocating the researchers and clinicians in order to break down the barriers between them. Social spaces including touchdown areas, conference rooms, cafés and a roof garden encourage further interaction, while a public gallery at street level promotes the hospital’s research to visitors and patients.

Meanwhile, flexible clinical floors integrate clinicians across multiple sub-specialties, providing the highest quality of multidisciplinary care for patients with complex neurological and musculoskeletal conditions. Designed to achieve LEED Gold certification, the Brigham Building for the Future is expected to complete in 2016.
