Chickasaw Nation Medical Center that located in Ada, United States, was designed by PageSoutherlandPage. A major design goal was to maximise access and views to these natural elements while concurrently increasing daylight into the building. Patient units are set on the ground with rooms oriented directly into the undeveloped parts of the site. Massing and building forms are influenced by Chickasaw culture and art – influencing the development of ‘Town Centre’, an atrium gathering space at the heart of the facility. Chickasaw culture embodies giving, sharing and a connection to an extended family and locating this space at the centre of the facility and putting dietary services adjacent to it, a gathering space for meeting and interacting is created.
