Stegenga + PARTNERS was selected to provide complete architectural services for a new 50,176-square-foot home health care and rehabilitation facility in Lawrenceville, Georgia, for MeSsun Health Services. The facility was designed to meet the unique cultural needs of the large community of Southeast Asians residing in Gwinnett County and the surrounding areas. The design process focused on the specific needs of the target community in addition to adding an aesthetic appeal reflective of the Southeast Asian heritage.

The architect approached the project with a concept that would ensure the cultural balance in both function and design. Constructed of structural steel, emphasizing the Asian heritage by also using traditional materials such as brick, concrete, metal roof, and incorporating a grand porte cochere with Asian-influenced lighting.
A modern Korean interior design celebrates the connection with nature by incorporating natural stone elements, rich wood paneling, and two-story spaces with large windows, allowing for natural lighting throughout. Functional comfort is provided with wood furniture and Asian interior decorating and artwork to provides a distinct and elegant interior which captures the "true home" for many residents in this area. A customized kitchen was also designed in order to prepare authentic Asian food for the residents.
Upon entering, patients are greeted with a warm welcome, and are given the opportunity to check in at the reception desk and relax in the parlor where the large grand piano is played on special occasions. In addition, on the first floor, this facility will accommodate large public areas, physical therapy, clinical, support, and administrative spaces, 15 private private-patient rooms, 15 semi-private patient rooms, and 2 two flex flex-patient rooms located on the first floor. The second floor will accommodate 17 private private-patient rooms, 16 semi-private patient rooms, 4 four flex flex-patient rooms, and clinical, support, and activity spaces.
