By creating a sinuous curving event in the form of seating and ceiling soffit that leads new patients to the greeting and hospitality areas we mitigated the problem of the fixed corner entry. The reception desk and sterilization areas are integrated into 2 separate massive columns that become part of their sculptural forms. A dark, open-grid ceiling in the Bay and Business Office help extend the sculptured forms onto the ceiling plane. The big construction challenge here was to facilitate the underground plumbing within a pre-stressed concrete grid floor.
