Eating Disorder Mental Health Unit
Richard Turlington Architects renovated the modest 3,000 square foot home in 2008 and again in 2018, into a Transitional Living Center. This beautiful Eating Disorder Unit, formerly known as “Michaels House,” was named after Michael Cominito a former patient who publicly supported the efforts of the Hospital and co-founded the annual Giving Hope Gala with husband Dennis Basso.
The 2018 renovation builds off of the life safety and code improvement work that was completed in 2008. The recent designs removed the common interior walls, thus creating a large open room that will include living, kitchen, and dining areas. The architectural design changes also included raising the ceilings and introducing many more skylights as well as opening the house up to the intimately landscaped backyard by way of private access.
