Woman’s New Life Center

New Orleans, LA

Due to tight site constraints, parking was located on the ground level with the clinic space occupying the second floor.

This steel framed building consists of 6,127 SF of built area, mostly on the second floor, and contains: 6 exam rooms, 6 offices, 3 counselor's offices, complete with natural daylight flooding the waiting room, reception, and support spaces. The largest design issue for the project was the narrow width of the site, which forced the building to reach from property line to property line. This required us to have 2-hour fire-rated masonry walls on each side which did not allow windows; therefore, daylight was brought in from above, through a raised lantern clerestory on the roof.
