Wellness Center as Garden of Eden
Wellness centers are cropping up on college campuses everywhere. For its new center, the College of New Rochelle asked Princeton architect Ikon.5 to give them a facility that spoke to wellness as a holistic experience of the human body, mind and spirit. In designing the new center, Design Partner Joseph Tattoni looked to the metaphor of a paradisiacal garden for inspiration in creating this award winning, Silver LEED certified building that merges building and landscape into a singular statement that speaks to wellness through its siting, program and materials.
