hood. An early design had the 11-story patient tower at the middle of the site, which
would have cast shadows onto surrounding
buildings, including condominiums across
the street. The team decided to shift the
tower location to the farthest southern end
of the site, near Geary Street, so that the
shadows would instead fall onto the hospital campus. "We were really conscious of
things like that," Avallone says. The change
also repositioned the tower's vertical elevator core and mechanical shafts over to
one side to connect with the building podium, creating more flexibility for clinical
and procedural platforms, including an integrated interventional platform for ORs.
Furthermore, the patient tower was designed in an irregular shape with a "bend"
at the middle to break up the large structure, while dichroic glass fins placed at
the bend on either side of the tower add a
colorful decorative statement on the façade. For the building podium, Virginia
Mist granite and a rain screen metal panel
system help ground the building on the
lower levels. Additionally, mini retail components such as the cafeteria were added
along Van Ness to promote interaction at
the street level. "San Francisco is still very
pedestrian friendly, and we didn't want to
make this feel like a gargantuan building
you're walking by," Chung says.
Another reality of the urban site that
posed a challenge was a 36-foot grade
change from the lowest point on Van Ness
and Geary to the highest point at Post and
Franklin. The team conducted traffic studies to determine the different portals and
entries that would be needed to access the
hospital, including public, emergency,
and general logistics/support, as well as
how to accommodate parking. "All those
things had to be negotiated within that
city block," Chung says. Taking advantage
of the sloping site, three separate points
of entry were created with the emergency drop-off tucked within the site at the
northeast corner, while a 300-foot-long
through-block runs through the base of the
podium, providing space for non-emergency patient drop-off, discharge pick-up, and
entrance to the parking garage below.
The solution, however, meant that patients and visitors would be arriving from
multiple entry points. To overcome this
challenge, the interior design team worked
