Estrella Medical Center
The design palette of the Estrella Medical Office Building is compatible and complimentary to that of the hospital that was under construction at the time. The unique vocabulary for the hospital responds to the desert environment with appropriate forms and materials that reflect its primary function as a healthcare facility. The new MOB campus, located on the West side of 93rd Avenue and connected by a pedestrian bridge, has the ability to create individuality and an identity of its own while respecting the hospital vocabulary.
The site planning concept continues the hospital’s East-West ‘pedestrian spine’ as its primary organizational element but creates ‘spin off’ site locations for other buildings within the MOB campus. Likewise, opportunities exist within the campus to allow further individuality of architectural expression within other facilities that could include daycare, oncology, and an ambulatory surgical center.
