Cummins LiveWell Center
The Cummins LiveWell Center is a cutting-edge health and wellness facility that houses primary and urgent care, physical medicine, preventative services, and lifestyle coaching. Located among the mecca of architectural masterpieces in Columbus, Indiana, the LiveWell Center pays respect to the surrounding heritage in both material and scale.
The facility is not your typical doctor’s office. It makes use of medical “bullpens” where physicians can converse and collaborate and features a kitchen and multi-purpose room. To avoid the sterility of conventional doctor’s offices, Axis made use of curtain walls and natural light. Skylights bring sunlight to the bullpens, and high ceilings and bright white walls help the facility feel airy and inviting.
It was important that the LiveWell Center complement the Cummins Corporate Office Building, so Axis designed the facility to be 24 feet tall — the same height as the Corporate Office Building. Courtyards and landscaping also play to the indoor/outdoor connections of the Corporate Office Building, and the welcome area and check-in process is modeled after an Apple store. Small pops of color define the facility’s departments. Bright, vibrant colors — whether they appear in furniture or accent carpeting — help patients feel energized and inspired. It’s a comfortable, inviting space that mimics Columbus’s iconic architecture.
