One Medical Group,
San Francisco, California
By embracing the beauty of the natural brick walls and bare wood ceiling of the existing building shell, Martinkovic Milford Architects was able to set a new standard for the design of an urban medical office. The loft-like aesthetic is enhanced by blocky, modern built-in furniture that incorporates rich, exotic finishes and LED lighting effects to create a sleek but warm counter point to the surrounding raw shell. Three striking, oversized pendants greet visitors to announce - in no uncertain terms - the patient check-in, while simple yet sophisticated globe pendant lights lead the way to the exam rooms.
