The 160,000-square-foot Emblem Health Medical Office Building, Emblem’s newest facility, is designed to provide outpatient medical services in Brooklyn, N.Y. Positioned to meet the needs of an underserved community in an urban setting, the building was strategically located near major mass transportation to attract patients to the health system’s expanding services.
Major design features of the seven-story facility, designed by Array Architects, include a parametrically designed folding glass exterior wall that mitigates late-afternoon solar gain, discrete off-street parking, and backlit metal panels that lend a soft glow to the building at night.
Opened in April 2019, the project is one of the largest and newest buildings in the neighborhood, supporting community growth.
