The recently completed Skip Viragh Building at the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Care Center. A 10-story, 184,000 SF building focused on an interdisciplinary approach to treating cancer through an array of diagnostic and treatment programs and multidisciplinary clinics. This building occupies a prominent hilltop location on the campus and in the city.

The Nelson Harvey Building, a 10-story, 180,000 SF facility renovated and repurposed to provide patient care for the Department of Medicine, pulmonology, gastroenterology, and cardiac medicine. To address the needs of the aging Nelson Harvey Building in this renovation project required an innovative and sustainable approach in developing a hybrid double-skin exterior envelope that resulted in a high-performance thermal skin with a modern design aesthetic that is energy efficient, environmentally sustainable, and highly resilient.
