NEXT HEALTHCARE


PROJECT OVERVIEW There is a great shift happening in healthcare today- patients are being diagnosed with multiple complex conditions, technology is transforming the way care is documented and there are constant innovations in care delivery to move care outside of acute care facilities and into the community. As such, there has been a boom in the medical oďŹƒce building sector to make care more accessible and convenient for all residents of an area. NEXT is a private medical group that has existed in the PaciďŹ c Northwest for more than 20 years. They are headquartered in Portland, Oregon but they have plans to expand to 3 additional locations in the Northwest over the next 12 months. They have a strong reputation for collaborative team-based care and focus on two distinct patient groups- millennials and baby boomers.

CONCEPT STATEMENT The driving inspiration behind this design pulls from nature of the Northwestern states. The colors are shades of blue and green, incorporating different patterns and textures to mimic the vivid colors found in nature. This evokes a feeling of relaxation, as well as promotes a healthy and active lifestyle. The Seattle rain also plays a strong inspirational role in this design as the ripple effect helps lead the sequencing and space planning of the NEXT suite.

WORKCAFE

FUNCTION The Work Café allows employees to decompress and socialize at any time of day. As part of the NEXT culture, workers are encouraged to eat with others versus alone at one’s desk. During non-peak meal times, the café provides a place to host all-staff meetings, team building activities, large vendor presentations, parties, and events. Employees will also use the space for casual client meetings and as an alternative work place when they desire a change of scenery.

FUNCTION NEXT wants their future workspaces to be open, collaborative, and functional. They want to move to a free address system for their mobile workers where spaces are not owned by these individuals and they can select from the variety of workspaces provided in the program based on the work being performed at that time. Their former office had only one style of workstation that didn’t suit everyone’s preferences. Because employees have varying needs that constantly change, the office allows employees to shift seamlessly through the four modes of work (socializing, collaborating, focusing, learning).
