This 1600 sf medical building located in East Mesa, was designed with a play of Mass and Void repeated on all sides of the structure. The windows were placed in the voids to bring natural light to each examination room while protecting them from the sun. We designed an adjustable vertical steel shade structure to further protect the windows and to allow for maximum privacy.

The nurses’ station was placed at the center of the building and the roof was raised to allow volume while bringing additional light from the clerestory windows to the North.  The entrance to the building and the small lobby is placed on the Southside, adjacent to the parking lot, with a horizontal shade structure to protect the large window/door composition to the building.

The outcome became a low profile contemporary building that is environmentally friendly, functionally conducive to the program and architecturally, a simple vocabulary defining the use and character of the medical complex.
