but through using slightly larger floor plates the
team got the facility down to four.
With a plan in place, the team then had to address how to create a visual link between the two
buildings while also giving them both distinct
identities. "The owners didn't want anyone to be
confused that the hotel was the medical building
or the CAHB building was the hotel," Burnette
says. Along with their varying heights, the buildings are distinguished through subtle exterior
material differences, including regional fieldstone on the hotel that ties in with the material
palette used throughout The Villages and warm
brick for the CAHB. Furthermore, the healthcare facility features wide bands of glass while
the hotel uses single windows, both more typical window patterns for their respective building types. "So very clearly as you drive up, you'll
see that taller building that looks and feels like
a hotel, and the medical building looks and feels
more medical but with warm materials choices,
earth-tone brick colors, and some generous use
of glass at the entrance areas," he says.
Although open to the public, CAHB was designed first and foremost with The Villages'
residents in mind. While most of the population
currently lives to the north of the campus, the
buildings had to accommodate future growth
to the south side, as well. "We needed to design
the building so it was accessible from both directions," says Burnette.
The solution for CAHB was two main entrance doors: one on the north side and one on
the south, with a two-story lobby in the center of
the healthcare facility to function as a wayfinding reference point and "as a place to meet, come
back to, and reconnect after the appointments
or procedures," Burnette says.
Inside, the circulation runs predominately
along a linear east and west axis where public
seating areas and the waiting rooms, called "living rooms," benefit from an abundance of daylight and views through the glass curtain wall,
which create a clear connection to the outdoors
for enhanced wayfinding. "In most cases you can
look out the lobby window and see where you
parked your car," says Burnette, who notes that
those public seating areas are also visible from
the outside. "So you're acclimated both in the
building and externally."

manager at ESa (Nashville), who collaborated
closely with Morse and her team as the interior
designer for both buildings. Specifically, visual
ties between the more subdued CAHB and the
bolder design of the hotel include cowhide print
vinyl upholstery (on headboards in guestrooms
and on seating in the CAHB), rustic wood accents on the lighting and ceilings, and vinyl wallcovering patterns including a bold turquoise and
red used in the CAHB. Used sparingly and only
in the public areas, the pattern is "reminiscent
of patterns seen on hand-woven saddle pads and
blankets used on cattle ranches," says Bobo, tying back to the Brownwood theme and the color
palette of the hotel, where red is used extensively.
For the CAHB, specifically, the interiors maintained the existing aesthetic of the healthcare
centers at The Villages, which have an eye on
creating a residential experience that's more at
the scale of a small hospitality project than a doctor's office. As a starting place, the CAHB's color
palette of turquoise, creamy neutrals, and brown
evolved directly from the hotel spa. The facility's
public areas offer lots of natural light; plush, hospitality-inspired furniture; and large-scale custom lights. "We wanted people to walk in and feel
comfortable," says Morse. For example, in place
of rows of chairs in the lobby and public seating
areas, the team created individual, private sitting spaces through groupings of the hospitalityinspired furniture to create a more relaxed setting, she says.
Helping patients feel "at home" was at the
heart of the design for this comprehensive
healthcare facility. "The goal was to make the
CAHB feel calming, relaxing, and welcoming,"
Bobo says. 

INTERIOR DESIGN

Both the CAHB and hotel were designed to conjure the "spirit of the Floridian Cowboy," an established theme for the town center at Brownwood, says Jarred Bobo, senior interior design
