Harbor Medical Building

Fullerton, California
2004

This two-story 25,000 square foot medical office building with two levels of subterranean parking was set into a sloping lot overlooking a public golf course in Orange County, CA. The constraints of a pinched elongated rectangular site and a severely sloping topography inspired a solution of a simple steel and glass office block atop a concrete parking structure blended into the hillside. Traffic flow into and out of the site dictated the orientation of the vehicular ramping system, parking slabs, and the location of the vertical circulation core.
