Sacred Heart Medical Office Building
Port St. Joe, Florida
Part of the new Sacred Heart medical complex in Port St. Joe, this medical office building is the first of two more planned buildings. The 24,300 SF Medical Office Building houses related services for the hospital and provides office space for doctors and other medical specialists. The building is sited to correspond to the hospital entry and a bridgeway that connects the two buildings. The building sits at a 30 degree angle to the main road to allow visibility of the entry from both the main road and the hospital entry and approach.
The building itself is a basic box, designed around typical medical office rooms to allow for the most efficient use of the square footage in the leasable space within the building. The distinguishing features are the entryway and main stair, whose design allows for an expression of arrival and movement to and within the building.
The design echoes the architectural vernacular of the neighboring Sacred Heart on the Gulf Hospital, also designed by DAG Architects.
