Kaiser Point Loma Medical Office Buildings

San Diego, California

ARCHITECTS hanna gabriel wells was tasked with revitalization of an existing Kaiser campus in Point Loma. The two existing medical office buildings while physically adjacent bared no resemblance or continuity to one another. One challenge was to determine the structural integrity of the older existing building, and resolve the best course of action; to reskin or rebuild. Using a lightweight exterior cladding, it was determined that a reskinning was possible. The design intent was to tie the campus together using similar materials and color palettes. The site now provides a clear link between the buildings and offers outdoor spaces for patients and staff to congregate.
