Orland Park, Illinois
The medical building presents itself as a simple, yet formal solution to a demanding site. The team acknowledged the severe side-slope of the site and sought to remedy this through a somewhat non-traditional method of balancing the topography through the building design. The resulting design put a focus on the two-story element as the primary facade. A simple play of materials reinforces this primary facade through rhythm and texture. The design team made great efforts to ensure the building would be well integrated into the surrounding environment while fulfilling the needs of the everyday users.
