Greenbrooke Medical Office Building, located in the rapidly growing Indianapolis-area community of Greenwood, is the heart of a new 20-acre medical campus development. The project's goal was focused on providing the region with a convenient location for the most advanced outpatient services in a facility that fosters patient comfort and provides an environment of efficiency for physicians and staff.

The building is organized around a large atrium that welcomes visitors with an abundance of natural light, warm wood details, slate accents, and a sculptural terrazzo floor design that emulates leaves and flowing water. The exterior signage and internal wayfinding take clues from this terrazzo design, creating a recognizable and consistent theme throughout the facility and campus.

The exterior materials of precast concrete, aluminum, and glass come together successfully to provide a refined image to the public. The soft color palette of the concrete is balanced by the crisp lines of the subtle green glazing and shimmering aluminum. The exterior facades capture daylight deep into the interior spaces, while exterior detailing adds visual interest with ever-changing shadow patterns on the building's surfaces.

The entire design team of owner/builder, architects, and engineers collaborated effectively from the project's inception to provide an atmosphere in a medical office building that is unique to the community it serves. Including physicians' offices, imaging, ambulatory surgery centers, sleep labs, and pharmacy, the facility has the flexibility to provide a healthcare infrastructure that supports a broad spectrum of outpatient services.
