When a local medical office decided to build a new corporate facility to house their growing practice, they chose a site in a new office park in a rapidly growing part of town. The contemporary structure is part of a group of new impressive, modern buildings in the park. The building had to house several disciplines important to the practice, including outpatient, rehab and rosthetics, while also providing future flexibility for new technologies and methods of practice.
The bright, naturally lit interior atrium serves as the circulation and visual connection point between levels. The open structure is enhanced by light maple wood and natural limestone tile. The neutral color palette and angled lines work to create interest and intimacy to the large square footage.
The waiting areas are defined by architectural elements and broken up with wood paneled dividers. Multiple seating areas provide options for patients and families. Much care was taken to choose appropriate materials to support the facility’s many functions. Carpet tile was chosen for office and waiting areas because of its durability and ease of maintenance. Carpet was also chosen for some of the circulation areas, although most patient areas are vinyl flooring.
The over-all effect of natural light, neutral contrasts and golden wood tone works to provide a pleasant space and support the integrity of this important building.
