Alda Ly Architecture（ALA）近日为Advantia Health公司打造了其位于华盛顿市中心的Liv女性健康诊所。作为一个服务女性的综合性健康机构，Liv的设计同样由全女性的建筑工作室完成，旨在营造充满关爱与舒适的环境，同时与社区建立良好关系，为女性提供更加优质和安全的治疗选择。工作人员的区域与患者区域在设计上得到了同等的重视，目的是让所有走进诊所的女性都能收获安心和被支持的感觉。
Alda Ly Architecture (ALA) has completed the inaugural location of Liv by Advantia Health, a comprehensive women’s health practice in downtown Washington D.C. Designed by the all-female architecture studio, Liv is a caring, comforting environment that cultivates community and empowers women to make educated health choices. Areas for patients and staff are approached with the same level of attention and thoughtfulness, driven by the goal of making all women who enter the building feel at ease and supported.

Three central concepts—comfort, community, and choice—inform all aspects of ALA’s design for the Liv flagship, which includes waiting areas for patients; staff areas that accommodate both individualized work and socialization; and exam rooms for primary care, gynecology, obstetrics, mental health, and more. The environment ALA has created is both a community hub for building connections between women and an intimate refuge for individual wellness, where shifts in layout, color, and material palette indicate these different programs.

The waiting area connects Liv to its surroundings—D.C.’s vibrant U-Street Corridor neighborhood, which affords accessibility by foot, car, and metro. ALA conceived this communal entryway as a living room for the neighborhood. Instead of endless rows of armchairs found in many waiting rooms, a variety of seating types respond to the varied needs of patients.

等候区建立了多元的设计策略，并延伸至整个Liv的内部空间。概括来说，室内的色彩和材料选择主要是从亲生物原则、Liv的标识以及Ines Longevial、Laura Berger和Lilian Thomas Burwell等女性艺术家的作品中获取灵感。
The waiting area establishes numerous design strategies that extend across the Liv space. Broadly, biophilic principles, Liv’s graphic identity, and inspiration from artworks by female artists like Ines Longevial, Laura Berger, and Lilian Thomas Burwell drive the color and material palette.

East and west sides of the corridor are color coded in mauve and teal gradients; each room threshold is marked by a different color for easy identification; and all hallways end with a glowing arched niche encased in a Calico Wallpaper mural that acts as a guiding focal point and anchor.

The color scheme of the exam rooms follows the teal and mauve gradients in the hallway. While some rooms are lighter and airier and others are darker and more intimate, a vibrancy atypical of traditional exam rooms fills all of them.

ALA also designed the staff area to make doctors’ and staff members’ experiences more supportive, seamless, and beautiful. This wing of Liv by Advantia Health includes a pantry, open workspace facing an exterior garden, private office spaces, and a changing and refresh room reminiscent of a spa.
