This 24,762 square foot, two-story rehabilitation facility embodies sustainable design through a high-performance building envelope, mechanical system, glazing and lighting. Neuroworx is a non-profit, community-based rehabilitation center for people experiencing paralysis from spinal cord injuries, brain injuries and strokes. Because substantial funding comes from donations, grants and other charitable contributions, it was important long-term building operational costs were a priority.
Signature features include exterior metal paneling that reflects the technical nature and robotic equipment used, and the wing-like features of the roof define re-found freedom and mobility that can be achieved through therapy. Building orientation, as well as floor to ceiling windows, bring in natural light and capitalize on the spectacular views of the valley.
