Plymouth Pediatric Associates Features Ocean Themed Space with Fun Colors for All Ages
Plymouth Pediatric Associates PPA (Plymouth, Mass.) has opened a new 12,000-square-foot medical office building (MOB) in Plymouth. Trapani Architects assisted PPA with interior design, furniture selection, site selection, programming, design, and construction administration.
About the Design
PPA envisioned a calming “ocean-themed” space with fun colors for all ages which Trapani delivered. The Trapani design team used patterns resembling sand dunes and waves, and cloth canvas sails flying high above the sun-filled main reception/waiting area to evoke this concept.
During construction, the team modified the plan in reaction to the effects of COVID-19 on a clinical setting, providing a solution that allowed the staff to section off areas of the clinic to create semi-isolated spaces, as needed.
The single-story medical office building includes both clinical and urgent care facilities, exam rooms, a lab, behavioral health treatment spaces, shared physicians’ offices, and two clinical workstations. Administrative spaces, such as a staff break room and training/conference room, are separated from the clinic side of the building by a two-story atrium with a large reception area, which can house separate registration spaces for well and sick patients.
