The City of Miami Beach was in need of a centrally located modern option for healthcare. Situated on the popular Alton Road corridor, the Baptist Miami Beach facility provides a new type of mixed-use healthcare experience; one where residents can walk to their appointment, have lunch, and shop -all in the same facility. With the support of both Crescent Heights and Baptist Health, we designed a project that is completely focused on community wellbeing.While traditional healthcare buildings internalize circulation, we designed an interior public promenade, effectively extending the sidewalk activity through the glass storefront and inviting the community inside.
