The Tulane Institute of Sports Medicine’s Professional Athlete Care Team clinic serves a unique audience with a specific set of needs. In this space, Tulane serves retired professional athletes who need an environment where they can have privacy to receive care for brain trauma and other long-term physical health concerns while acclimating to life after pro sports. Advent took on the challenge of designing a practical medical space with a welcoming atmosphere, delivering a calm, inviting space that feels more like a retreat than a hospital. Warm colors and natural materials provide an organic atmosphere, and vibrant football history displays offer inspiration and encouragement.
Design elements also highlight the clinic’s partners, including the NFL Player Care Foundation and The Trust, who focus on the well-being of pro athletes as they transition into life off the field. From the entrance to the meditation room, Advent designers took great care to create a cohesive, calming environment and a concierge healthcare experience.
