Cedars-Sinai Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion

  • area / size 820,000 sqft
  • Completed 2013
  • HOK completed the design of the Cedars-Sinai Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion located in Los Angeles, California.

    The 11-story Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion (AHSP) breaks down traditional institutional boundaries by combining world-class patient care, clinical offices, physician education, and training and research in one building.

    With a research pavilion on the top two floors and clinics on lower levels, physicians can bring scientific breakthroughs to their patients with maximum safety and speed. Designed to bridge the gap between discovery and patient care, this new facility places research labs near clinical settings so physician-scientists can help transform medical care at Cedars-Sinai.

    The flexible building houses translational research labs as well as outpatient centers of excellence, clinical functions and outpatient procedure centers. A plaza level features an educational center, café, pharmacy, blood lab and imaging facilities.

    With its high-tech sensibility, sleek transparency and quality, well-crafted materials, the design of the building communicates the synergy of healthcare and science that is at its heart. Situated on a public edge of the Cedars-Sinai campus, adjacent to the primary circulation spine, the pavilion creates a new symbolic entry to the medical campus.

    The LEED Gold design features materials that are environmentally friendly and energy-saving while also allowing for light and an enhanced sense of openness.
