Hoover Institution Conference Center and Office Building
Stanford, CA

Situated at the base of the iconic Hoover Tower and adjacent to Stanford University’s historic main quad, the Hoover Conference Center and Office Building provides a new home for the public policy research center’s symposia and donor retreats as well as consolidated offices for the institution’s management and operations. The 55,000 square foot building houses a 400 person auditorium and a 440 person dining hall/multi-purpose room with a single-level suite of offices and meeting rooms on the second floor above. A glassy arcade and central pavilion space provide pre-function support for the two main function halls while connecting directly to new outdoor courtyards and the Stanford campus beyond. The project is currently in construction documentation. The Associate Architect is Cody Anderson Wasney Architects of Palo Alto, CA.

Cleveland Clinic
Cancer Building
Cleveland, OH

Bringing together patient treatment programs into one centralized location, the new Cleveland Clinic Cancer Building helps improve the patient experience and increase interaction among caregivers. Located on the Cleveland Clinic’s 168 acre main campus along the East Crile Mall, the project reinforces the Cleveland Clinic Masterplan’s green spine. The 377,000 square foot multidisciplinary Cancer Building includes 126 exam rooms, 98 infusion bays, six linear accelerators, seven procedure rooms, and a Gamma Knife room. The prominent cantilevered glass façade and extensive use of glass on the north and south facades will fill the building with daylight – in patient corridors, in all infusion rooms, at care stations, and in team workrooms. The project opened in March, 2017. The Healthcare Architect is Stantec.
