MEDICAL: Yosemite Avenue Medical | Madera, CA | Built
Two buildings that total 6,800 square feet of medical office space in Madera, California were developed by a local physician who wished to occupy space at a prominent intersection close to the hospital. The architecture chosen for the medical offices complex features simple forms and materials with crisp detailing and no ornament for ornament sake. The facades feature trellis structures supported by raised masonry planters to shade windows, provide pleasant views looking out from interior spaces, and highlight the interrelated connection between the natural and built environment that exists in the San Joaquin Valley. Two sloped roof masses mark the office entries that occur at an interior plaza where office entries occur. Butt-glazed windows open the interior up to the exterior and admit views of trellis supported wisteria beyond.
