The 5th floor of the Ambulatory Care Center (ACC) building offers sweeping views of downtown San Francisco. The 10,000 SF space houses the now consolidated UCSF-Parnassus Heart & Vascular services ambulatory programs. Taylor Design created an interior clinic space that reflects the contrast of the urban city view with the lush greenery of the surrounding park. The use of contrast is also demonstrated by the on-stage/off-stage concept that delineates the public facing spaces from the staff and clinician-only spaces. Furniture and finishes mirror both the natural hues of the park and the monochromatic hues of the city. The reception desk itself acts as a reflection of the city. The raw concrete columns were left exposed inside the space to contrast the warm wood utilized on the entry wall. Large patterned panels of glass were placed between the wood planks to reflect the breathtaking exterior views and break up the long runs of wood. Artwork used throughout the space drew inspiration from the graphic style of x-ray images of items found in nature.
