Redesign of the entire first floor and main entry façade creates a welcoming and efficient pedestrian flow from North Charles Street, and reinforces Mosaic’s character as a positive anchor in the community. Mosaic is a regional not-for-profit organization that provides community-based mental health services to adults and children. The renovation acts as a catalyst to establish a fully integrated outpatient healthcare model that provides both mental and somatic health services in the same facility.
This project allocated the lobby and main programs to the first floor. The new lobby was designed to convey a sense of welcome and openness, in line with Mosaic’s mission.
The existing lobby was located on the fourth floor, and many of Mosaic’s primary programs were scattered throughout the building. The lack of coherent flow to the building proved confusing for patients and guests.
A corridor with “break-out” spaces for casual meetings. Intake area with acoustic privacy. Exam room.
Communicating stair strengthens the connection between programs existing on the first and second floors.
