  • Alda Ly Architecture designed a welcoming and intentional space for women at the Tia Clinic in the Williamsburg neighborhood in New York City, New York.

    Alda Ly Architecture (ALA) has designed two new spaces for Tia, a full-service women’s healthcare platform in New York City’s SoHo and Williamsburg neighborhoods. ALA has previously designed Tia locations in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Phoenix. Similarly to those previous locations, the two New York spaces are enlivened by vibrant colors and bold architectural geometries that translate Tia’s brand identity and graphic language into a dynamic physical environment.

    In both spaces, patients are welcomed by a hospitality-focused “living room” and led down a central corridor to consult rooms, wellness areas (with acupuncture & massage rooms), a lactation room, and a pelvic floor physical therapy room. Additionally, the SoHo space includes Tia’s signature classroom space, which will host a series of programming ranging from yoga and lactation classes to group therapy and community-based conversations. A core element of all ALA-designed Tia spaces is a spacious and calming staff lounge, complete with its own kitchen, locker area, and space to relax. Other supportive staff spaces like a meeting room and phone booths are also distributed throughout the space. ALA provides the same visual transparency and intuitive navigation at the New York spaces to help guide patients, staff and providers through their individual and communal care journeys.

    Tia Williamsburg, located just a few blocks from Brooklyn’s waterfront, is the first storefront location of the women’s healthcare company. Situated across two floors and 4,000 square-feet, ALA employs a connecting stair between the two levels to make the interior environment feel open and airy. Wellness services were placed downstairs in a space that feels distinct from the community and primary care programming on the main floor. ALA’s design aesthetic plays off of Williamsburg’s vibrant and design-driven demographic. Pushing the playfulness of the geometries, ALA implemented winding paths and a sculptural, carved path down to the wellness area. The space has a more modern artistic language with curated moments for refreshment, education, and overall empowerment.
