I was honored to be one of two Principals in the firm at Hart Freeland Roberts to be selected to design a small hospital for Kaiser Permanente. The design center around a water feature used to collect roof and site water and assist with geothermal heating and cooling of the building. Rooftop equipment was concealed by a sloped roof covered in solar voltaics. The facility was designed to expand down both sides of the lake with outpatient departments and out the rear with addition diagnostic space.
Wayfinding was made simple with clear and simple access corridors utilizing natural light alongside the front corridor and skylights deeper in the building complex.
The importance of spiritual healing is expressed by the chapel and healing garden on the front of the building.
