Medical Office Building II was designed to serve 119 providers and include radiology, nuclear medicine, clinical laboratory, occupational medicine, pharmacy, pediatrics, adult hematology and oncology, gastroenterology, ob/gyn, neurology, cardiology, outpatient procedures and other services.
Medix Ambulance Service provides emergency and on-call ambulance service for the Warrenton community and surrounding area. The Shop Building is devoted to out-of-weather parking and light vehicle maintenance for company-owned vehicles.
Gabriel served as Project Designer of this educational facility planned to simulate a colony on Mars, to be constructed of components easily transportable from Earth, assembled with a minimum of equipment, placed into operation quickly, and capable of supporting life in an extremely hostile environment.
In developing the site a centrally located natural depression inspired the creation of a bio-swale to provide filtration of stormwater runoff from 31,500 sq ft of surrounding area, including paved drives and roof drainage. We sculpted a peninsula to establish a 160 ft long "horseshoe-shaped" channel, slowing the flow and maximizing exposure to the pollutant-filtering capabilities of grass, vegetation and absorptive soil before water reaches the groundwater table (or the outflow line during heavy rains).
The large-scale informs
with cutting-edge management,
building techniques and systems.
The small-scale informs
with the importance
of moment-by-moment experience.
Awareness of both can yield
an exceptional result
- even magic -
whether your project is modest
