METHODIST CONVENIENT CARE CAMPUS
44,000 SF | Grand Prairie, Texas
The design takes advantage of the site conditions to create a dual level entry into the building – allowing for the building to simultaneously respect the context of bordering neighborhoods, and maximize visibility towards the major roads. The building is sited along the East-West orientation to optimize daylight use and reduce overexposure which allow Primary Care Physicians and Specialty clinics to take advantage of the day lighting opportunities and create a better patient experience.
The strong definition of two distinct geometries creates the character and image of the building, taking away its reliance on building materials as a main source of identity. The break-up of the two masses allows the building to establish a scale proportionate to the neighborhoods in its surrounding and therefore building itself as a part of the community
The design approach breaks the medical office building typology into a composition of intuitive architectural elements that serve as intuitive access points, therefore decreasing congestion and creating a better patient experience.
