To upgrade the poorly renovated facade into a contemporary medical office facility and to convert the maze of corridors and medical office spaces into three distinctive patient areas.
Each treatment area required its own identifiable entrance with easy access for patients with mobility issues. To break up the 300+-foot long building exterior, the depth of the building plane was stepped in and out and the stone/cement board panel layout varied – stone, siding, or a combination. To simplify construction the new façade was hung on the existing building structure. Separate canopies provide easily identifiable entry points and protect the bariatric entrance, the physical/occupational therapy clinic, and adjacent phlebotomy resource center entrances. Amenities such as sidewalks, landscaping, and a bus stop were integrated into the site design, tying the building to its neighborhood and transforming a run-down building into a point of civic pride.
