New Live/Work Spaces

As we continue to settle into the “new normal” of a combination live/work lifestyle as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the various benefits and the looming possibility of another health crisis have caused designers to look to the future of our spaces. The experts at Katz Architecture have envisioned a new kind of live work space, where people can both relax and conduct business in harmony: certain floors dedicated entirely to residential units, and others committed entirely to office and flex spaces for individual and collaborative work while also providing people with the necessary greenspace and fresh air needed for a holistic and healthy lifestyle. We spoke with Katz Architecture founder David Katz about this concept.

Finding Our Way in a New Office Normal

As offices continue to reopen and welcome employees back to work, things will be different. The offices themselves will be largely the same, but employees' behaviors will have to change. TPG Architecture developed a wayfinding program to help with this problem. Gladys Yue, partner and head of branding and graphics at TPG Architecture, described the wayfinding system.

Far-Sighted Vision of Healthcare

Brad Earl, AIA, NCARB, Design Principal at NELSON Worldwide, talked about his firm's design of a new facility for Main Line Health in King of Prussia, PA.

Spirit of Collaboration

Jen Luoni, director of operations - architecture, at Dacon, described the process of designing and building ABI Lab2. As a bio-incubator, ABI Lab2 was created to foster collaboration and discovery among bio-tech startups, thus accelerating the development of crucial medical therapies. That same spirit of collaboration was employed to create the facility itself, as the developers, Dacon, and technical experts and subcontractors worked together to speed up the building's development.
