The contemporary Kaleida Health, Clinical and Medical Research Building, New York


International architectural practice Cannon Design have completed the Kaleida Health, Clinical and Medical Research Building: Gates Vascular Institute (GVI) and UB Clinical Translational Research Center project. Completed in 2012, the medical centre can be found in downtown Buffalo, New York, US

Adelto takes a sneak peek at the Gates Vascular Institute and Clinical Translational Research Center, which forms the cornerstone of a new world-class health sciences campus focused on the regeneration of downtown Buffalo. The spirit of collaboration was the driving force uniting Kaleida Health and the University at Buffalo within a single structure, and the building strives to bring several disciplines and its patients, surgeons and researchers, together to exchange knowledge and ignite innovation.

The 476,000 sf facility achieves this by stacking a translational research building over a clinical vascular institute. The first four floors of this 10-storey “vertical campus,” house the Gates Vascular Institute, with the Clinical and Translational Research Center occupying the top half of the building. Sandwiched between the two, is a two-level “collaborative core”—the “binder” that connects doctors and researchers from varying specialties to meet in a variety of dynamic situations to accelerate medical discoveries—moving science from the bench to the bedside.

The interior design is very contemporary and clinical. We love the contemporary glass staircase and unique use of lighting that changes colour.

The contemporary medical building is extremely swish and high-tech. The exterior of the building with its curves and bends gives the impression you are observing some futuristic building, we love it.
