Cherokee Health Systems Englewood
A new clinic for the Englewood community provides primary clinical and behavioral health care in addition to community meeting spaces. The rural community offers a pastoral setting to this clinic and the design takes maximum advantage with ample views, optimal solar orientation and a sustainable geothermal heating and cooling system.
The design is reminiscent of Cherokee's corporate headquarters in the use of materials and form, but offers an intimate scale. All patient areas are flooded with natural light for an inviting spatial experience. Patient pods and clinic spaces surround a central staff core which optimizes patient flow and staff efficiency.
