A husband and wife, both physicians with different specialty practices, wanted to build a free-standing office building. The site, located off a major highway, offered high visibility for their growing practices and provided convenient proximity to the hospitals of Houma. The site is bordered by tree-lined canals and has several groupings of mature hardwoods.
A pair of glass pavilions provides independent entry and waiting for each practice, and illuminate at night to present and eye-catching appearance from the highway. Shed roof forms, expressed steel framing, and corrugated metal siding acknowledge the industrial character of the Gulf Coast region. During the day, the pavilions are filled with natural light, accessing views to the exterior where tree groupings define outdoor seating areas.
