L

in Houston, one of Texas'
largest not-for-profit community health centers, had
been operating in Houston's Fifth Ward for almost a decade when an expiring lease on existing space prompted
conversations about creating something more substantial. At the same time, the Fifth Ward Community Redevelopment Corp. needed a catalyst for new growth in the
area and turned to Legacy Community Health to help
spur it. The result is Legacy Community Health's Fifth Ward Lyons Clinic, a
new space that offers affordable, high-quality healthcare to low-income patients in a medical home model.
Completed in May, the clinic is the provider's second largest facility. The
16,900-square-foot campus houses adult primary care, OB/GYN services,
pediatrics, behavioral health, dental care, and vision services. A geriatric
practice and pharmacy are planned to open by the end of this year.
The facility integrates the personality, diversity, and beauty of the area
with custom art installations, creative flooring designs, and inviting colors
that support a sense of calm for visitors. Joel Kalmin, director of facility design at Legacy Community Health, along with Kirksey Architecture (Houston) and D.E. Harvey Builders (Houston), spent three months planning the
building's interior and exterior spaces before the project's groundbreaking
in October 2016. To create an overarching design theme, the team was inspired by historical images of the neighborhood during the 1940s, with selections based on the vibrant street scenes captured during that time.
Legacy Community Health wanted the building to deliver a significant
architectural footing for the community and support the area's revitalization efforts. To that end, a mural by Houston artist Reginald Adams
was commissioned for the exterior and features handcrafted tiles and
other components created by staff and community members. Additional
paintings and collages from local artists Jesse Lott and Tony Parana are
displayed throughout the building, including in a community room and
waiting areas.
Additionally, a plaza entrance provides a welcoming space, with tiered
concrete risers at the corner of the building creating amphitheater-style
seating. Glazing and large windows on the fa├žade provide passersby with
views inside the clinic's two-story lobby.
Inside, bold colors and large graphics serve as wayfinding to help patients
navigate the building. For example, different colors, including green, blue,
and orange, are used on the walls to identify each service line area. In the
lobby, 1,000 colored flooring tiles are arranged in a quilt-like
pattern. The varied materials, colors, and shapes of the patterns represent the diversity of the community and the foundation of the Fifth Ward's first medical home.
