Congratulations to the Member Award Recipient!


In keeping with the Adventist Health System’s philosophical approach to healing (the intersections of faith and medicine), the project celebrates the physical and spiritual elements of this mission throughout the building and site in both direct and subtle ways, allowing the discovery of these messages to engage employees and visitors alike throughout the day.

The site was initially comprised of wetlands and bordered by two major thoroughfares, which initially offered multiple challenges but became the metaphor of the client’s dual-focused healing mission. The bustling highway traffic became representative of the ever changing and dynamic healthcare landscape while the tranquil, natural setting offers a spiritual refuge and oasis. The interior design reinforces these connections at every turn, moving from one building to the next, across an activated landscape that speaks to the inclusive and collaborative culture of AHS.

The designers created a dynamic, terraced café, state of the art auditorium and pre-function spaces that share operable walls, allowing these individual spaces to convert into a single “mission room.”

All floors of the main building share a five story “mission atrium” and “mission stair”, bringing diverse teams together and providing every staff member with maximum daylighting and prominent views towards the spiritual garden oasis.
