Contractor: McCarthy Construction
Architect: Taylor Design
Client: Kaiser Antelope Valley

Kaiser saw the need for a new, highly sustainable, specialty medical office building to bring specialized care to a growing number of members in the remote location of Lancaster California, 70 miles north of Los Angeles. Known for its windy, high desert climate, Lancaster’s extreme weather presented challenges in the design and construction, particularly in light of Kaiser’s goals of LEED Gold-certification.

 The south facing wall of the building is covered by a curvilinear glass curtain that allows the building to harvest natural light and minimize the need for artificial lighting during the day time. Providing expansive views of the mountains on the horizon, the large windows help create a biophilic design that incorporates nature into the built environment, which can prove crucial in healthcare facilities as it contributes directly to patient’s well-being.

Diversified Window Coverings installed motorized Mecho shades with SolarTrac 50 throughout the building, 65 motors, 215 manual shades, and an assortment of cubicle curtains and tracks.
