Project Description


Mekus Tanager designed the new 8,500-square foot facility to house space for offices, open plan workstations, conference rooms, a classroom facility, and a work/demonstration lab. The overall objective was to create an atmosphere that was professional and refined while also imparting a sense of ease and comfort in visiting patients. Since completion, the Medical Center has become the object of envy for all other doctors on Loyola’s campus.


To that end, correct lighting was an important factor in creating the appropriate atmosphere. Because the existing building housing the space was short on perimeter windows, clerestories and glazed doors were integrated into the design to maximize natural light. In addition, canted, “sawtooth” ceilings were incorporated into the open plan areas and classroom space in order to create the impression of openness and brightness.
