UPMC Presbyterian Hospital
site design | pittsburgh, pa
Located in the heart of Pittsburg’s Oakland neighborhood, UPMC is reshaping its urban campus with the renovation of its Presbyterian Hospital property. This ambitious project involves the partial demolition of the existing south tower building, construction of a new addition, and the creation of a new green space. The project also offered an opportunity to create new amenities for hospital staff, patients, and the surrounding community. Andropogon, in collaboration with GBBN Architects, is designing this new open space to enhance the overall arrival experience, provide a sequence of outdoor rooms for staff, patients, and community members, to reenvision pedestrian and vehicular connections, and to accommodate future expansions outlined in the hospital master plan.
