KHDC Lewistown Community Health Center

Posted: June 10, 2020 | Projects

While this 46,000-square-foot multi-service medical facility is a simple rectangular box in its overall form, the architectural aesthetic relies on the metal skin to create scale, texture, and visual interest. The various metal panel profiles and depths visually shape the exterior skin as a textured graphic expression. It responds to the direction of sunlight, creating movement through shade and shadow, resulting in dynamic and ever-changing building façades. The four-color scheme creates visual interest, and further defines the composition of the elements that create the architectural order of the building façades. The exposed fastener metal panels were selected for their aesthetic design appeal, durability, low maintenance, and economical value.
