project description:

New 5,000 SF free standing building housing a 16 station dialysis clinic.

design solutions:

Building siting flush to street property lines is consistent with the character of this older Chicago commercial street environment. Edges are held and strip malling is avoided. Building massing interlocks brick, concrete, stucco and metal panel volumes. Negative volumes at the sidewalks contain gardens. High windows provide natural light while maximizing privacy and security.
