Wellness Institute, Chicago (2001)
The visionary founder of this center wisely partnered with the Northwestern University hospital. A fashion designer, she was the first to establish a head-to-toe facility combining wellness, beauty and health.
26,000 sq. ft. in urban building
Features: Medical, men and women’s health, dermatology, laser, acupuncture, nutrition counseling and spa
Outcome: Recognized as the first-ever integrated wellness center, this 100-year-old masonry building lacked the mechanical infrastructure required and had to be retrofitted to accommodate plumbing, electrical and HVAC.
