Guidewell Innovation Center at Lake Nona
The GuideWell Innovation Center in Lake Nona Medical City will serve as the epicenter for the development of new health solutions. GuideWell’s vision for the facility was to “create the ideal place that inspires human potential through innovative collaboration.” To achieve this important ambition, we conducted several collaboration meetings to reach consensus on every detail of the unique space and furnishing needs.
The GuideWell Innovation Center offers state-of-the-art connectivity and an inviting, creative workspace, housing a gallery of exhibits, living lab, innovation theater, star-up garage, studio, imagination cinema and executive conference space to foster a culture of imaginative thinking, ideation and collaboration. The 92,000-square-foot, three-story building is anchored by GuideWell Innovation Collaborative Resource Ecosystem on the first floor, where early-stage healthcare and life sciences companies have 30,000 square feet of collaboration space specifically for them.
The facility represents GuideWell’s focus on emerging health sciences with contemporary aesthetics. Features include cast-in-place concrete stained floors, raised access flooring in specific areas for adaptability, demountable glass walls with perforated wood look ceiling panels, aluminum curtain wall, and an impact resistant glazing system.
The space also incorporates sustainable design elements of day-lighting, high efficiency mechanical and lighting systems, recycled materials, and a construction process that reduced and recycled construction waste.
