The 65,000 square foot Rancho Vista MOB is designed to serve as a neighborhood outpatient center for a regional hospital. The building is planned to sit within a portion of commercial center located within the heart of a planned residential community. Due to its three story height, the structure is sited on an angle in order to minimize shadowing and open up views of the nearby mountains to its residential neighbors. Colors and materials have been incorporated in the design to complement the mission style architecture of the adjacent homes and respect the local design guidelines. In order to maximize flexibility for the intended medical end-users, the building’s floor plates have been designed with minimal internal obstruction and clear heights increased in order to handle additional mechanical equipment and ducting.
