A new medical office for an orthopedic surgeon. This project consisted of creating a new medical office in virgin "shell space" within an existing medical office building at St. Vincent's One-Nineteen Health and Wellness Center in Birmingham, Alabama.

This new medical office for an orthopedic surgeon was the initial build-out of shell space on the second floor of St. Vincent's One Nineteen Health and Wellness in Birmingham.
The client desired a high degree of openness to allow lots of natural light and views into the interior of the space while maintaining patient privacy with controlled sight lines and interior glazing for acoustic separation. The interior layout is organized along a sweeping curve which creates dynamic visual interest while also providing a calming influence. Large, west-facing windows feature interior window box planters to bring a natural element indoors while screening views of the roof below. Attractive finishes such as stone and wood in various shades continue the theme.
The approximately 1,700 s.f. office consists of a clinical area, reception, waiting room for 12 people, exam rooms, a procedure/cast room, a private office, a break room/kitchenette, a rest room and storage space. 3-D computer visualization and simulation were used extensively in the design process to model the flow of patients and staff, test layouts/views, and to explore various finish schemes. The work was completed in early 2009, under budget.
