In creating this 5,000-square-foot
women's primary care clinic, located
in the Lakeview neighborhood of
Chicago, efforts were made to develop
a model or prototype that could be
implemented throughout the client's
growing network.
The planning of the space-as a
model for others-was developed to
be adaptable with respect to varying
demographics, different environments,
future technology, flexibility, retaining/
attracting staff and physicians, and the
increasing patient population.
Several concise goals were determined at project onset:
* The client's brand identity had
to be integrated in an enhanced
environment.
* There had to be an efficient work
and patient flow.
* A modest budget and aggressive
implementation schedule had to
be met.
Providing an environment that is
welcoming, nurturing, and relaxing
was achieved by taking advantage of
the building's existing architecture and
complementing it with fresh materials.
The rich characteristics of the vintage
building's heavy timber construction
become a feature in the reception and
waiting area as well as the core space.
Many of the existing windows were
retained to diffuse natural light and to
maintain patient privacy. The shared
physician offices and the staff break
room were placed along elevations that

also provided natural light and take
advantage of the exposed brick in these
areas, adding texture and giving a nod
to the building's history.
The design of the staff spaces was
given as much attention as the patient
spaces, as these areas are utilized
for both work time and as places for
respite. The reception and waiting
area create the first impression of the
patient experience. Implementing a
"living-room"-like seating arrangement, providing soft decorative
lighting, and including vibrant artwork
all lent to the calming, nurturing, hospitality aesthetic that the client felt was
important to be threaded throughout
the clinic.
Incorporating the owner's brand
identity was successfully implemented
using materials, furniture, and technology that included brand colors and
reflected the organization's outlook:
modern, progressive, and humanistic.
Providing a work flow that is efficient and flexible was critical. Understanding hours of operation, staffing,
and methodologies that would remain,
change, and be planned for in the
future were all integrated. The overall
plan was designed based on a more

Design team: Eckenhoff Saunders Architects-Michael Vinci, principal;
Avel Bustamante, project architect; Susan Suhar, director of interiors; Lisa
Kubiak, interior designer; Berg Engineering Consultants-Mark Goedjen,
project engineer; Reed Construction (general contractor)
condensed core consisting of workstations and prep areas. This allowed the
staff to be in proximity to both support
spaces and the exam rooms.
Since the project needed to be
completed in a short period of time
and with a modest budget, careful consideration went into the design with a
focus on economical construction that
can be repeated in this and future projects. Details and material selections
were clean, durable, cost effective, and
immediately available. Architectural/
specialty finish features were limited to
key locations and focal points.
Post-occupancy follow-up has
proved successful for the patient and
staff experience. Work flow has been

efficient, patient satisfaction has been
positive, and the project was delivered
on budget and in time.
Jury comments:
* Integration of existing building
materials (brick, wood columns
and joists, ductwork) was
handled very well. Palette is
refreshing and nature inspired.
* Takes full advantage of the
building context. The contrast
between existing timber
construction and new elements
provides a rich yet economical
experience.
