The AA team was recognized for design excellence at the 2015 American Institute of Architects San Fernando Valley Chapter Awards banquet held in Los Angeles. The AIA SFV awards celebrate outstanding architecture, acknowledging AA for their work on the newly completed Cedars Sinai Urgent Care facility located in Culver City.
When Cedars Sinai approached AA to design a new Urgent Care Center, we welcomed the opportunity to elevate the standard healthcare facility above and beyond the status quo. It was our foremost goal to create a highly functional space that serves the practical needs of the community, while advancing the typical medical environment to be less sterile and more welcoming.
We wanted the layout to feel expansive and open, but still encourage a flow that catered to the frequent and sensitive transitions of the patients and staff. We achieved this by directionally orienting visitors with turquoise fins that lead towards major pathways and darker wood accents that indicate key locations, such as check-in desks and nursing stations. High design elements were thoroughly considered in every material detail, such as sculptural LED light fixtures and plank flooring. The result is a distinctly streamlined space that gratifies both the client and the public it serves.
