For the past 4 months, I’ve been spending a lot of time in London working on a project with Britain’s National Health Service on a hospital in Notting Hill. The hospital was shuttered about two years ago and they hired my firm to create a plan to convert it into a campus that engages neighbors around their health. They wanted to reinvent how their traditional healthcare system functioned. They wanted to transform it from medical and sickcare to proactive, neighborhood-based centers that focus on health, happiness, and prevention. It has no doctors or medical services. It is more like a social club that connects locals around food, movement, expanding minds, and relaxation to optimize your:
As part of the project, we created a series of portraits and videos that told the life stories of ten people in the neighborhood we found interesting. We strongly believe that people in a community are much more important than spaces. If you give passionate people a beautiful space to exercise their passions, everyone wins.
Also, I took these portraits. I really love photography. I am extremely fortunate that I’ve been able to create my own career. Who would have thought that a doctor could co-found a creative firm that could meld medical care, health, happiness, anthropology, design, and photography and then work with amazing clients on projects that improve health all over the world?
