John E. Meyer Medical Pavillion
Merrionette Park, Illinois
Designed in the prairie style, this medical facility features terraced courtyard areas that channel natural light into the lower level of the facility and provide additional meeting/break areas for the staff. Interior day lighting, resulting from clerestory windows along the central spine, benefits areas that are most central to the facility. Corridors open up to gardens resulting in abundant natural light flowing throughout the interior. Landscaping supports the design intent aesthetically and environmentally through reductions in building operating and maintenance costs.
