The Heath & Wellness Center is a new space for members of the Law Enforcement Health and Benefits to receive fitness training, behavioral, and dietary counseling. LEHB is a non-profit organization that manages the health insurance program for the Philadelphia Police Department and the Police union. JacobsWyper Architects was brought on to design the 22,000 sq ft. two-story building, which now lives in place of a once existing demolished building.
The lobby features wood wallcoverings, polished concrete, and tiles. The first floor of the center includes an aerobics room, cardio, weight training, and two bathrooms/locker rooms. The second floor is a mini clinic for Temple Health and includes five exam rooms, a conference room, demonstration kitchen with food prep appliances, offices, and counseling rooms.
The exterior facades consisted of ultra-high-performance concrete panels with aluminum batten fins, veneer brick and a combination of glass and glazing systems including curtainwall, storefronts and window units.
