Clinica Family Health Lafayette  |  Lafayette, CO

The 65,000 s.f. Clinica Family Health medical office building consolidates and relocates four local existing Clinica buildings into one new facility in Lafayette, Colorado. The facility posed challenges with its uneven square footage on the first and second floors (39,000 s.f. and 26,000 s.f. respectively). This offset program made it difficult to stack the floor plates, but allowed us to create a two-story space on the south end that connects the clinical space and the administration space, along with a second-floor exterior space that can be used by staff. First-floor clinical space consists of integrated medical and dental pods, pharmacy, financial screening, a group visit space and a county space. The second floor houses administration, HR, IT, and a training area.

The building surrounds a courtyard near the entrance of the building to allow for community space. Two group visit rooms also open to the courtyard, creating an indoor/outdoor space for gatherings. Highlighted by an L-shape plan, the building was designed with three pods, with room for a fourth pod in the future if necessary. The second floor houses a rooftop garden and exterior space that is overlooked by the boardroom, which ties the outdoors into the interior of the space.
