The Crown City Medical Office Building is part of the Crown City Medical Campus located in Pasadena, Calif. Set along the banks of the Eaton Canyon in a park-like landscape, the campus is designed to provide a setting for better health and wellness. 

Pasadena's Craftsman architectural tradition provides the basis for a more up-to-date interpretation of these elements, now carried through from the Veterinary Clinic at the west side (2002), the newly renovated Medical Clinic (2006) in the center, and the new Medical Office Building on the eastern side. The interiors are warmed by natural light through a series of clerestory windows. The exterior is finished with warm materials featuring cultured stone, a copper roof, trellis with vines, and a mixture of colors which complement the natural surroundings. 

The site is crossed by a 10-foot diameter concrete culvert that drains storm water from the San Gabriel foothills via the streets, to the Eaton Canyon Reservoir. The new building is designed to span this underground pipe, maintaining the maximum developmental advantages without placing any load on the pipe. Construction was also affected by the need to divert overhead power lines. 

The 5,700-square-foot Medical Office Building will eventually be rented to medical/office tenants. The shell can be separated into a maximum of four office units, each built to suit. The building is the final addition to the Crown City Medical Campus at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains.
