PHILADELPHIA (Oct 2015) – Live Nation opens new Fillmore, interior designed by EwingCole, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

EwingCole’s design of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s newest regional cancer center was recently named the recipient of the Modern Healthcare’s 2015 Gold-Prize Award. The award program recognizes excellence in the design and planning of healthcare facilities.

The challenge for the design team was converting the dated brick and metal panel building with large floor plates into a state of the art cancer center which upheld MSK’s preeminence as a leader in cancer treatment and reflected their high standard of care.

The building not only accomplished the stringent task of achieving LEED Gold but also implemented additional healthy-building initiatives such as specifying entirely PVC-free products for both construction and design.
