From a design perspective, the orthotics and prosthetics company Limb Lab offered us a chance to translate their fundamental craft into architectural decisions and statements.  For us the concept of connecting two materials--the organic and the synthetic--was extremely stimulating and provided a footing to make design decisions throughout their space.  Like an onion we removed existing materials only to find more opportunities to update decades of cobbled together construction and to expose major construction alterations to this historic building.  The final plan is a combination of both 1) a high profile, transparent, dynamic entry/waiting room that highlights their products and people, and 2) private, flexible patient rooms that offer a chance to take that difficult first step.
