Nixon Forensic Center at Fulton State
Hospital was reimagined from the ground up to
focus on healing, recovery, and safety through
leading-edge behavioral health design. WSP
served as the prime consultant, while EYP
was the project designer. The 300-bed facility
includes a 360,000 square-foot treatment center
and 63,000 square-foot service suite.
The design maximizes light to circulation and
treatment areas and provides access to outdoor
space. Twelve residential units were paired into
six star-like clusters to allow glazing and views
from every room. The curvilinear circulation
minimizes walking distances to reduce staff
stress while providing faster access in times
of need. The intersection of a central spine
and a cross corridor creates four light-giving
courtyards. Every community was thoughtfully designed to address safety and therapeutic
needs by minimizing visual impact while providing both real and perceived security to staff and
patients.
Transparency and integrated landscaping
welcome the local community via a park-like
perimeter. Terra cotta and glass modulate the façade, and the lobby features a protective canopy
supported by columns in both ordered and disordered configurations to express the sensibility
of the intricate work within. The design strives
to project a feeling of wellness and a return to
normalcy that also supports patients' recovery.
