The new medical office building in an urban redevelopment corridor merges modern timeless design with a strongly contextual approach finding inspiration in the local environment and reflecting the client’s mission. The design explores natural light as a metaphor for health and well being. The building design is oriented on the site to provide maximum daylight and views to the outside while simultaneously protecting patient privacy. Skylights align with interior corridors and interior transom windows bring in daylight to exam rooms and staff areas. The saw tooth design along the front façade is designed to maximize northern ambient light and views to the outside without the need for window coverings. Logical circulation paths are controlled and easy to navigate. The entry to the building is clear, direct, open, inviting and serves as a covered drop off area and way fi nder visible from the busy arterial roadway. Native mature trees were preserved by the thoughtful placement of the building on the site and careful parking placement and pedestrian paths integrated into extensive landscaped areas.
