Ryan Ranch Outpatient Campus
The new outpatient campus of the Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula creates a fresh identity for a legacy institution on California’s central coast. Just miles from the revered main campus, designed by Edward Durell Stone, its elegantly variegated concrete plinth recalls Stone’s legacy. The graceful, sheltering roof of the main building echoes the shapes of the surrounding hillsides, and the soffit and finely scaled wood lattice glazing screens abstract the feathery canopies of coast live oak and manzanita. A warm, wood-lined balcony, inset into the cool glass and metal façade, embraces and represents the individual in this expansive landscape.
The facility program includes an education center, diagnostic laboratory, medical office building, imaging center, sleep center, home care center, and rehabilitation services. Sustainable design features include extensive daylighting to all private and open office areas and most exam and procedure rooms; wood lattice screens that reduce glare while providing ample views; materials that reflect the campus’s scenic landscape; below-grade parking; bio-swales; low-VOC materials; and energy efficient design. Our work efforts resulted in a 20-year master plan totaling 230,000 square feet of program. The first phase of the master plan includes an Imaging and Ambulatory Care Building as well as a community-based Medical Office Building.
