UCSF Ambulatory Care Center (ACC) 5 Heart & Vascular Clinic Renovation

The 5th Floor of the Ambulatory Care Center (ACC) Building offers sweeping views of downtown San Francisco all the way to the tips of the Golden Gate Bridge. The 10,000 square-foot space houses the now consolidated UCSF-Parnassus Heart & Vascular services ambulatory programs. Originally constructed in 1973, the building is undergoing extensive renovation as part of UC San Francisco’s Long Range Development Plan.

The interior clinic space was designed to reflect the contrast of the urban city view with the lush greenery of the surrounding park. The raw concrete columns were left exposed inside the space to contrast the warm wood utilized on the entry wall. Large patterned panels of glass were placed between the wood planks to reflect the breathtaking exterior views and break up the long runs of wood.  A patient tracking system was implemented to enable faster response times. The on-stage/off-stage layout allows for privacy, direct access from touch-down space to patients, easier access to the caregiver, and also provides areas of respite for the clinician.

Program: Reception, waiting area and associated offices, clinic area with 18 exam rooms and associated support and staff areas, testing area with 8 procedure rooms and support spaces, and an academic and administrative area with 9 offices and staff support areas.
