The Western Reserve MOB is a project that is establishing a new Brand for Western Reserve Hospital, a physician owned Organization. Looking to step forward to be a key market force, the building is located on Season’s Road just west of Route 8. This building will be the hub of the communities that they engage. It will be a destination, like driving up to a specialty hotel or lodge in the woods. It will be welcoming and emblematic of the character of the community. The built environment will be safe, efficient, and showcase the quality of the care within. The facility will be easy to navigate and tie the campus to the natural beauty on the site and beyond.
The project focuses to site the physical building gracefully in the pristine landscape and be a true compliment to the natural amenities. Sited on 8 acres, the 60,800 SF, three story building, accentuates a public concourse that organizes the clinics toward the wetlands to the West. The allows the facility to take advantage of an extraordinary amount of Natural daylight in both the public and staff spaces, while capturing the prime views to the wetlands in the staff respite zones. The concourse acts as a circulation organization tool from the exterior to the interior. Patients move in and around the public concourse to help them focus on their care rather than where they are headed. The pause in the façade, anchors the canopy, defining entry/exterior signage, while internally being the organizer of the greeter/registration services at each clinical floor. A monumental stair connects the first and second floor, providing access to the retail component from the two floors. The retail component will align with a local retail vendor, given opportunities for staff and patients to take a break both interior to the building as well as out. The exterior café seating aligns with the green connector of the site, that serves as the main promenade for parking at the northeast portion of the site. The promenade will connect the natural landscape across the entire site and align to future natural walking paths.
