PHOTO TOUR: Norton Neuroscience Institute

Architectural firm DesignGroup (Columbus, Ohio) collaborated with Norton Healthcare in Louisville, Ky., to create the Norton Neuroscience Institute (NNI). The goal was to deliver a comprehensive clinical space dedicated to the health of the brain.

The 47,000-square-foot project comprises two floors in an existing medical office building. The idea of a one-stop-shop transformed into a center hub and adjacent spoke departments.

The center hub simplifies wayfinding with a greeter at entry. The third floor is dedicated to subspecialty clinics with 55 exam rooms. The fourth floor houses the Cressman Neurological Rehabilitation center, a multidisciplinary clinic comprised of the neurodiagnostic services, pain management, and the Norton Neuroscience Institute Resource Center.

Opened in May 2021, NNI evokes a feeling of calm and relaxation through ample natural light and conversational seating clusters. Neuro-inspired artwork and interactive design elements offer a high-tech and museum-like factor.

Using wider corridors between each clinical pod allows for ease of access to the exam rooms, given the mobility issues of the users, as well as allows for more natural light to spill in from the exterior.

Staff spaces are organized at the perimeters of the clinical spaces, giving them freedom to collaborate and share resources across different centers. Staff spaces leverage furniture solutions for maximum flexibility. Additionally, spaces are planned for focused work as well as collaborative work.
