Abstract :

Louise Braverman designed the C.V. Starr Hand Surgery Center as part of a new addition to St Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York, NY. The facility contains physicians' offices, a rare book library, a conference area and examination and therapy rooms. The architect wanted to create an atmosphere appropriate for a treatment and teaching center for hand surgery, so she emphasized hand-crafted work. Mahogany, complemented by bronze, was used frequently in the decor. Detailing was intricate, especially in non-treatment areas of the clinic. This was Braverman's first experience in designing a healthcare facility.
