This project in Newport Beach is a “reskin”¬†of an existing 32,860 square foot 2-story medical office with existing surgery center. It is a complete facade renovation and accessibility upgrade for the site and public spaces within the existing building. The building was originally built in 1964 by Richard H Dodd as a medical office building.

The main interior lobby renovation features a circular staircase, refinished and renovated with a glass guardrail and stainless steel handrails and a terrazzo tile finish on the treads. Ceiling heights were redesigned to give the space an open feel. Stacked, large format, terrazzo tile flows from the elevated exterior plaza throughout the lobby and into the south entrance of the building creating a cohesive exterior and interior design.
