The new construction of a 19,000sf, 4-story medical office building on Liberty Avenue creates a strong street presence that engages both users and observers of the architecture. The building bridges the two scales already present in the urban context; the seven story hospital across the street with the small houses alongside the building and behind on the hill.

"A meeting, an attraction, aroused in him a rich, agitated possessiveness. He rushed into the future with the first glance, swept along by a need for connection that extended the moment before it had begun."
