Description

These medical offices have an unusual form and are very difficult to see from the exterior. In the simplified plan, the building is composed of two adjacent circles connected by a diamond- shaped reception vestibule. Patients enter through a small garden, into the reception vestibule that contains garden patios and two receptionist desks. Each of the four doctors occupies one-quarter of a circle; the other quarters are taken up by exam rooms.
