Today’s featured project is Bethany Medical Clinic located in Kansas City, KS. This 10,000 SF clinic serves as a hand on student training facility while accommodating the needs of the local Wyandotte County community. This project was our second medical facility for Swope Health Services.
Today’s featured project is Swope Health Services South, an adaptive reuse of a defunct retail center located at 88th and Troost in Kansas City, MO. This 3,500 SF clinic was designed to accommodate an expansion to 10,000 SF.
The health services check-out counters pictured in the image above were designed and fabricated components in Pendulum’s modular design studio. They are constructed of bent aluminum plates with powder and clear coat finish.
Inner City Health Care – Modern, Modular, Affordable
When Swope Health Services approached us about transforming a former night club located at 8825 Troost into a community health clinic, we were pretty excited about the potential to have an impact on the community through design. Although the existing condition of the building (as illustrated above) provided us with a strong dose of reality, i.e. there was quite a bit of work to be done in a short period of time; we were encouraged by the enthusiasm and leadership of our client who stated: “We want this facility to be the benchmark for our new clinics.”
We responded to our clients call to action by first setting a baseline for their design expectations through a series of charrettes with administrators, doctors, and operations staff. We then narrowed our approach to three simple characteristics: clean, warm, and colorful. The images below illustrate our final solution.
In addition to Pendulum Studio’s interior design, our subsidiary brand Modular Products LLC designed and fabricated a 9′- 0″ long check out counter and a 13′-0″ long reception desk. Both elements feature aluminum construction with a powder coat/clear coat finish, backlit accent panels, and integrated filing system by Square One Interiors.
