Residents of Winter Park, Florida, are fortunate to access a one-of-a-kind facility in their neighborhood. Wellness, fitness, and medicine are all under one roof at the Center for Health & Wellbeing. Visitors can see healthcare professionals, walk, exercise, swim, lounge, eat and socialize in a setting that is warm and welcoming from the outside in. And this is absolutely by design.

Duda|Paine Architects' architecture is showcased by illumination envisioned by the team at Cline Bettridge Bernstein Lighting Design (CBB). CBB designed the lighting to create a warm, inviting, and healthy environment.

Make a great first impression

AtriumAn atrium known as the Commons is the centerpiece of the 78,000 square foot space. The second floor features a popular walking track and lounge space that partially overhangs the main floor. Downlights are recessed in the overhang to illuminate the walkways below as visitors navigate through the facility. Accent lighting is also strategically placed along the Commons main floor perimeter ceiling to highlight the beautiful wooden columns along the atrium while creating multiple layers of light.

A friendly welcome

Inviting you to recharge

Cafe In the Nourish Coffee Bar + Kitchen, 4-inch wall washers and corner wall washers highlight the unusual combination of wood, painted upper walls, and subway tiles. The warm 3000K lighting, mounted primarily over the counter and food preparation area, supplements the seating area's statement pendants. Robert Benson Photography

Recreating the night sky

Pool Lighting in the athletic center's natatorium emulates the night sky. Significant natural light comes in from a window of walls, with additional light coming from a series of circular skylights above the two pools. The skylights inspired CBB to create "constellations" across the ceiling, using wide beam 2-inch downlights and 4- and 6-inch downlights in random patterns to represent planets and stars.
