Southland Health Center
Conversion of an abandoned auto dealership in Oak Lawn, IL. into a class “A” Health & Fitness Center and supporting Medical offices. The majority of the existing masonry building was repurposed and encapsulated by a carefully planned combination of additions and new openings. A curtain wall was erected in front of the existing masonry structure creating a unique material layering effect from the street view,with the existing masonry wall visible and showcased behind the new glass skin. Natural light is brought into the health and office spaces through new glass walls while 2-story spaces and clerestory windows bring light deeper into the common spaces and office areas.
