The 5th Floor of the Ambulatory Care Center (ACC) Building offers sweeping views of downtown San Francisco all the way to the tips of the Golden Gate Bridge. The 10,000 square-foot space houses the now consolidated UCSF-Parnassus Heart & Vascular services ambulatory programs. The interior clinic space was designed to reflect the contrast of the urban city view with the lush greenery of the surrounding park. The raw concrete columns were left exposed inside the space to contrast the warm wood utilized on the entry wall. The on-stage/off-stage layout allows for privacy, direct access from touch-down space to patients, easier access to the caregiver, and also provides areas of respite for the clinician.
Circulation improvements included adding a secondary access corridor for staff providing a secondary entrance into the exam rooms. Clerestories were introduced in most exam rooms to bring as much light as possible in from the exterior windows.
