Medical Office Architect
To date Architecture Work P.C. in New York, NY has designed over a hundred offices in the metro area and Long Island including orthopedic, sports medicine, pain management, vascular, psychiatric, dermatological, plastic surgery and dental practices. On each project, we always strive to achieve the most efficient use of the space & make our doctors needs fit neatly.
The first one we built at Architecture Work P.C. was for a prominent orthopedic surgeon on Long Island in 1984. This was back in the day of paper files & voluminous onsite chart storage. The administrative part of the office at that time consumed 1/3rd of the total floor space, which was considered quite efficient. By the mid 1990’s that proportion was beginning to exceed almost 2/3rds the space allocated to administration! The advent of electronic storage and the changing nature of payments to doctors created an effort to roll back this alarming trend – doctors became more aware of what they could “live with” in terms of the size of the rooms and computers enabled higher productivity of the staff. Office “flow” for the floor plan layouts became paramount.
