The design prompt for this site was to come up with a building that would provide healthcare offices for the nearby hospital. The design response included a walking bridge for people to easily be able to access the building from the direction of the hospital, as well as a response to the nearby stream. The challenge for this site was navigating the parking required for the existing buildings on site, as well as for the new office space. As a preliminary exercise, we started with a design crit to come up with a massing that could exist with the necessary parking on the site and maximized height and density. The result is a bold design, that compliments the

surrounding buildings in form with round edges and a glass atrium, however, provides a refreshing new twist to the built environment with some strong design features including a flag pole.
