NEW YORK CITY—Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, recently announced construction is complete on Princeton Longevity Center, a preventive medicine facility located at 1 World Trade Center. Ware Malcomb provided the interior architecture and design services for the project.
The 10,000-square-foot facility is a new build-out that includes a 2,000-square foot-imaging-diagnostic licensing suite, including advanced technology imaging rooms and a CT scan room. The space also includes a reception area, a lounge, individual patient rooms, exam rooms, offices, and a fitness room. The design is hospitality-focused and mirrors the aesthetic established at their Princeton, New Jersey location.
“Princeton Longevity Center is extremely patient-centric in all of their decisions,” said Marlyn Zucosky, Regional Director, Interior Architecture & Design for Ware Malcomb. “We were pleased to work closely with them to design a facility to enhance their patients’ experience and wellness. The result is a highly-functional, relaxing and beautiful space in one of the world’s highest-profile buildings.”
At the entrance to the suite, a virtual receptionist assists guests with check-in. The inviting lounge offers spectacular views from the 71st floor of the 1 World Trade Center and incorporates wood-look luxury vinyl tile flooring, as well as a curved reception desk with backlit features. A custom hand-woven rug, a unique light fixture and a custom millwork coffee bar add a hospitality vibe to the spacious waiting area.
Individual patient rooms provide guests with a private space while they spend the day at Princeton Longevity Center and include computers, showers and a relaxing lounge atmosphere. The exam rooms and doctor offices, which also provide views of the city, incorporate calming colors. The rich tones of the design color palette are a dramatic contrast to the natural light provided by floor-to-ceiling windows.
The general contractor was Icon Interiors, Inc. The project achieved LEED Gold certification, a requirement of all 1 World Trade Center tenants. This is Ware Malcomb’s second project for Princeton Longevity Center; the first was their Princeton, NJ location, completed four years ago. Princeton Longevity Center is a leader in the preventive medicine market, offering the most advanced technology services and serving C-suite clientele with comprehensive medical evaluations.
