When two independent orthopedic practices wanted to co-locate in new offices, we satisfied their unique needs while creating efficiencies through shared spaces: a common lobby, jointly used X-ray facilities and a central staff break room. Using our extensive experience in accessibility design, we created wide corridors and minimized floor transitions to accommodate ambulatory-challenged patients.
Abundant natural daylight, even in the exam rooms, good indoor air quality and energy-saving features all contribute to the healthfulness of the facilities for both staff and patients. The reception areas use warm woods and muted colors with carefully located pops of brightness. We carried the palette throughout the two suites to create a soothing, gracious and distinctly non-clinical ambiance.
