We are a group of architects and engineers working collaboratively to make a positive impact on the built environment.  From our large light filled studio, we focus our energy on diverse projects, working together to create spaces that will inspire and hold meaning for our clients and the collective community.  Regardless of project type or scale, we see every design as an opportunity to fulfill client goals and fuel our passion for architecture.

MORRIS ONCOLOGY CENTER

Giving patients a calm and soothing connection to nature with surrounding farmland to provide them with positive energy while going through a stressful experience was the goal of this facility. The design is geometric, and linear shapes were used to add interest to the building drawing it up from the ground toward the sky, suggesting hope and optimism. Large windows were incorporated in the chemotherapy treatment area to allow as much natural light as possible.

 

PROGRAM

Local, natural materials like limestone were used in the building construction for the 27,000 sq. ft. oncology and hematology center. The interior features warm earthy tones to create a comforting environment.  There are 7 physician offices, 22 exam rooms, pharmacy, 2 MRI's, 2 CT Scans, 1 linear accelerator, 1 PET, chemotherapy recovery area, and 68 parking spaces.
