Running a hybrid program comprising of Urgent Care and state-licensed
Emergency Room, Legacy ER aims to advance community access to
high-quality healthcare services by positioning the architectural
significance of its facility into direct alignment with the client's
goal of elevating the patient care experience to an unprecedented level.
By focusing the architecture on the patient and the staff the quality of
healthcare delivery is elevated and provides respite from the emotional
distress relating to emergency medical situations.
The conceptual framework seeks to capture in aesthetic terms the duality
of the emergency medical professional characters, projecting outwardly
the knowledge, skill, precision, and decisiveness necessary for the
practice of emergency medicine, and reflecting inwardly the gentle,
empathic, and humanistic qualities of the persons beneath the robe. This
is realized simply through an architectural montage of sharply folded
exterior robe of zinc and softly sculpted interior plastered planes. The
points of admission of natural daylight and outdoor views are frameless
apertures that puncture through the building envelope and interior
planes and elucidate those intersecting tectonic moments. Views, volume,
and light are elements that get repeated throughout the building. The
atmospheric quality combination and interplay of these three elements
continually morph the interior in response to the natural climatic
conditions and poetically links the users to nature.
Completed in November of 2013, the project site is previously an open
pasture surrounded by commercially-driven suburban residential
subdivisions, chain stores, and strip centers. The landscape strategies
introduce an exemplary way of reconciliation between nature and man-made
settings prevalent to the locality. Native, adaptive vegetation with low
water demands and subtle grading of land were used as design elements to
evoke memories of natural landscape whose forms reflect the interior and
cocoons the exterior form.
