OPENED IN OCTOBER 2016, Imbert Cancer Center (Bay Shore,

N.Y.) is part of the Northwell Health Cancer Institute, one
of the largest cancer programs in the New York metropolitan area. Imbert Cancer Center brings together experienced
cancer specialists in surgical oncology, medical oncology, radiation oncology, chemotherapy treatment, and diagnostic and interventional radiology. The new facility builds on the cancer services Northwell
Health Cancer Institute has been offering the community for years, including colorectal, gynecologic oncology, thoracic, and breast care.
Northwell's objective was to create a state-of-the-art comprehensive
cancer center reinforced by contemporary aesthetics that reflect the
community. The primary design inspirations came from the Bay Shore,
N.Y., location, a seaside community on Long Island's south shore. The
beautiful beaches and popular sailing boat regatta views created a strong
background for the color palette and material use for this project. Aesthetic details also focused on the need to create "living rooms" instead
of "waiting rooms," with hospitality aesthetics that reflect a home environment. Cancer patients actively undergoing treatment can have long
treatments and periods of waiting time. The attempt to make the space
appear as a home-like environment was central to the vision.

JU RY C OMMENT S:
* Sleek, simple, elegant, nice color accents.  Enduring design.
* Creation of "living rooms" vs. "waiting rooms" concept is creative and innovative;
design inspiration from the natural surroundings of the project location well
implemented.
* I feel the design successfully communicates the hospital's objective, to create
a state-of-the-art cancer center and aesthetics that reflect the community.  The
materials were integrated into the design beautifully to reflect the shoreline
community and provide a sense of serenity.

The cancer center is an
adaptive reuse project utilizing a former supermarket building. To support
BEFORE
this noble cause the design
team introduced architectural materials that have high recycled content
and significantly contribute to LEED initiatives.
In addition, all lighting uses energy efficient LED
fixtures with dimming and long life capabilities.
The majority of materials are no- or low VOCs.
The lobby welcomes you with a gentle, beachinspired palette of simple architectural materials
including porcelain tile, drift wood, solid surface,
and paint tastefully combined to re-interpret the
shapes of sails, drift wood, and fisherman's glass
floats. The curvilinear bench and concierge desk
are reminiscent of the sailboats and incorporate
sand stone, solid surface, and drift wood.
The lobby of the center and the other public
spaces were designed as an evolving art gallery
and comfortable space for community events.
The center features a respite garden for patients
to look at while undergoing chemotherapy
treatment. The center offers spaces for support
groups, nutritional and genetic counseling, and
educational activities.
The shapes and the glass material as well as colors of the main lobby light fixtures, infusion area,
and radiation oncology areas were inspired by
fisherman's glass floats. A curated artglass flock of
birds appears in the lobby as if flying into the main
practice suite. Other artglass features includes
sea anemones along main patient corridors.
As you enter each of the departments, there are
lounge areas that are beach house inspired with
soft translucent drapery window treatments,
beach-themed artwork, and homelike furnishings with accent pillows, lighting fixtures, nautical accessories made out of recycled glass and
mother of pearl, board games, and coffee table
books. The textural, woven-look carpet adds to
the softness and homelike appeal of the space.
The greeting desks and infusion area partitions were inspired by sail shapes and the color
of the water. The privacy trellises were inspired
by marina walkways and the banquette seating is
reminiscent of a sailboat interior design.
