About the Project

Lab100 is the first-of-its-kind health and research facility bringing the power of experiential design to health. Lab100 combines the latest innovations in design and architecture to state-of-the-art technology to turn a doctor’s visit into an educational and entertaining experience. During the visit, patients are encouraged to ask questions and develop a thorough understanding of their body and their mind. Lab100 is connecting everyday behaviors with conventional medicine, shifting health care’s emphasis on treating disease toward preventing disease in the first place.

Inspired by the iterative innovation driving the medtech industry, Lab100 is comprised of a flexible and modular system offering an ever-evolving experience thriving on patient-driven development. Data collection software, interactive hardware, and visualization technology are seamlessly integrated into the clinic's physical structures allowing for rapid adaptation to new spatial environments and constraints.

At its heart, Lab100 is a software and design product. Every aspect of the clinic, including all medical tests, require real time data ingestion, interpretation and visualization. The entire Lab100 design language is based on precision. Each element of software, hardware and architecture is designed within the same 16x9 grid. This unifying graphical system allows for the technology and architecture to blend seamlessly together.

What’s unique about it

In an era where machine learning, connected devices and AI will make as much of an impact in medical research as clinical trials or lab tests, how do we does the patient experience look and feel like? And if personal data is the fuel for medical progress, how can we encourage thousands of patients to contribute theirs?

A far cry from the sterile and cold environments of the typical medical clinic, patients at Lab100 are welcomed into a comforting space bright with natural sunlight and punctuated with considered detailing. Crystalline and frosted glass partitions allow for natural light to permeate the space whilst still ensuring patient privacy, and polished white impermeable surfaces balanced by naturally finished woods creates a warm but hygienic environment. A seamless incorporation of pattern across surface, material, and displays creates a holistic tactile and visual experience throughout the space, emphasizing the precision in Lab100’s technology and patient care.

Patients at Lab100 engage with their health like never before. Immersive, tech-enhanced testing captures their health data across an ever-expanding number of metrics. Easy to decipher data visualizations and educational media allows patients to comprehend their personalized data and turn them into actionable takeaways.
