Central Islip State Hospital

Prior to establishing Morpurgo Architects, as Associate Partner at Armand Bartos Associates, Gus was Project Architect for the firm’s Central Islip State Hospital. This Health and Hospital Corporation initiative provides interim services to assist patients with mental health problems make the transition from a hospital environment to congregate housing.

Interaction among the patients is encouraged by the creation of a central indoor light-filled space that connects an atrium, auditorium, social hall and craft workshops.
Through built-form, Gus and the Bartos team designed an architectural environment that facilitates the healing of the mentally disabled.
