Neurological Outpatient Therapy Center Methodist Rehabilitation Center
A cold and uninviting warehouse provided a dated and dreary therapy space for this specialized neurological rehab center. Having designed several of the Methodist Rehab Centers specialty centers, CCD was engaged to transform the building into a state of the art neuro rehab center. "Dynamic, exciting, and far more interesting" have been used to describe the newly renovated areas. Exterior walls were opened up with large expanses of windows to provide much needed natural lighting, engaging the patients rehab experience. The use of interior storefront with translucent color panels make the walls open and inviting for patients and less of a barrier. Colors and finishes were carefully selected and tested with staff and patients alike, including the use of bright white and blue accents, and neutral vinyl flooring. Large ceiling "clouds" were placed to provide the best acoustics control and the play on the ceiling heights make the space interesting and allow for the original warehouse space to utilize existing building systems. The therapist station was placed near the center to provide the best location to work in private but maintain visual access to gym.
