This rehabilitation facility's patients often receive multiple treatments, so they need to move about the hospital easily. The triangular shape of the building lent itself perfectly to a circular-flow design, says co-owner Stacy Nigrelli.
This practice was designed to limit the overlap in client and staff traffic and minimize the total steps the doctors take in a day. The design team also worked to maintain sight and communication lines between spaces.
This efficient facility packs three exam rooms and much more into the 1,500 available square feet. A big design driver: the owner's desire to make the most of the ample window frontage.
