About this Project

MP developed a new workplace strategy to accommodate a 30% growth in the department since their administrative space was designed. The team evaluated each individual program element for utilization and the requirement of proximity to the surgery department. This information informed the new space program that relocated complex and intensive tasks, creating a short term touchdown space for the anesthesiologists and a café lounge that can function as a multipurpose room for large presentations.

A key departure from typical healthcare interior was the introduction of a glass corridor wall to allow for the transfer of natural light into the staff corridor. The project also allowed the department to create a dedicated education center and simulation lab.
