The Details

This contemporary outpatient eye surgery center is designed to meet the needs of patients as well as the technology and equipment demands of its doctors, nurses and staff.

The center includes a waiting area, two operating rooms and a pre- and postoperative recovery area as well as a centrally-located nurses’ station, offices and more.

Sun visors over each exterior window shade patient areas from sunlight and exterior light. The front entrance, shaded by a porte cochere, protects visitors from the elements; an exit separate from the main entrance enables patients to leave the building privately after procedures. Inside, soothing colors and materials reflect biophilic design concepts, which integrate natural elements supporting the health and well-being of building occupants. Glass globe lights over the reception desk and ring lights overhead provide additional lighting. Natural wood-paneled walls create a sense of warmth and comfort, while shades of blue and green throughout the building provide an additional soothing effect.
