The challenge was to convert a very abused industrial
building into an inviting medical office building.
The old industrial building was changed to a new
two-story facility by infilling the high bay area
with a new floor level.
Portions of the two-story high bay spaces were
retained for waiting areas at two corners directly
adjacent to the new entry, which is defined by
a circular canopy and stair.
The new exterior skin is composed of brick of
two subtly different colors, which follow the
openings and fenestration pattern of the previous
building. New openings are punched out as needed
for the new function. This allows “ghosts”
of the previous incarnation to be expressed.
