The new Columbia University School of Nursing building is intended to create an integrated and expanded facility with a distinct sense of place. The site is pivotal to the Columbia University Medical Center campus: located at its eastern edge, it acts as a gateway to the larger campus.

The 66,000 GSF new building incorporates Student Spaces, such as simulation and clinical skills center, Faculty Spaces, such as offices and research centers, and clinical skills center, Faculty Spaces, such as offices and research centers, and Administrative Spaces. The overriding project goals seek to increase research capability for faculty; to enhance the learning environment for students; to reinforce the school's mission through a strong physical image; and to provide the gathering spaces that foster student and faculty interaction, creating an uplifting and stimulating place for learning, research and the interchange of ideas - ultimately creating in the building's occupants a pride of place.
