Wolfe Eye Clinic
West Des Moines, Iowa

Challenge: Design a new facility for one of Iowa's premier eye and ENT clinics.

SVPA Solution: The two-story office building and clinic of architectural precast panels and brick masonry veneer expresses the outstanding medical reputation of Wolfe Eye Clinic. A prominent exterior canopy and the large custom reception area provide instant way-finding for persons with visual difficulties, welcoming them to the clinic. Large amounts of natural light in the public and waiting areas also assist in way-finding. The individual examination rooms are designed to assist Wolfe Clinic physicians and staff in performing their jobs as effectively as possible. Construction for an ambulatory surgery center in the lower level, owned by Dallas County Hospitals, was completed in 2007.

Completion Date: Fall 2004

Project Size: 40,000 s.f.
