Each summer, leading architects convene for two days to review and choose 10 facilities to receive the coveted Facility of Merit® Awards. Facilities are selected on the basis of plan efficiency; functional relationships and measures taken to maximize use of space; interior finishes, detailing and color schemes; exterior design; relationship of building to site; and cost of construction for value received.
Here’s what the judges had to say about the Wellness Center.
“A jewel-like building set in seemingly bucolic surroundings, this wellness center shines literally and figuratively. When you view it from the exterior, you immediately want to go in and explore. The interior color palette, mostly neutral with a few splashes of color, is very compelling.” — Tracy Carusi
“The design team’s restrained use of materials, careful and appropriate siting, simple forms and refined detailing result in a graceful and dignified building. The ethereal quality of light in this facility provides a wonderful user experience.” — Katie Barnes
“The planning overlaps different activities, and does it in a clean well-organized way.” — Steve Chung=
