Denver Veterans Affair Medical CenterThe new replacement hospital on the former Fitzsimons Army Medical Campusin Aurora, being built by the Department of Veterans Affairs, encompasses 1.1million square feet and consists of 9 buildings, 3 parking garages and a centerconcourse that connects the buildings. Total site area contains 33 acres for theproject. 22 acres of the project are structures and pavements, while theremaining 11 acres are softscape aiding in the absorption of storm runoff fromroofs and pavement. An acre of extensive green roof serves as the first flushfor the water quality of the project.Landscaping has been designed to take advantage of the native foliage ofColorado. Not only do these plants generally require less irrigation, fertilizer Storm Runoff Diagramand care than other non-native selections, but they remind us all of the beautyof the outdoors around us. Drip irrigation systems will be used and may usenon-potable water to reduce potable water use. Perennial and native grassplantings will provide a beautiful landscaping backdrop throughout the yearbut require little maintenance after the first few years. Natural Colorado stoneis being used where possible to provide fencing and security barriers.Client: Denver Veterans AffairsLocation: Aurora, COCompletion: 2014-2015Services: Medical Programming, Concept Design through Design Development,Construction Documentation and Construction Administration.

  13. 13. Exempla Lutheran Medical Center NorthPavilionThe North Pavilion project at Exempla Lutheran MedicalCenter introduces a new 275,000 SF multi-storybuilding addition to the northeast portion of theexisting hospital. Much of the original 1934 hospitalwas demolished for this new addition. As part of thedemolition many of the original terra cotta architecturalpieces on the building were saved and introduced intothe new architecture and the surrounding landscape.Extensive site work was completed to complement thenew pavilion and original campus. A new entry drive,arrival plaza and clock tower, entry courtyard andmultiple garden spaces present a village feeling to thispart of the campus while recognizing the historicallegacy of the original structures on the site.The garden spaces offer a pleasant and inviting spacefor all to view, enjoy and interact with as part of theirhealing or respite process. These gardens are situatedso they can be easily accessed and viewed from manyof the interior spaces of the hospital. Ornamentalplantings in these gardens are arranged to reflect theexisting natural surroundings of the site whilerespecting the history of the existing campus. Theintroduction of antique terra cotta into the gardensadded a nostalgic touch.Great care and thought went into incorporating theseantique terra cotta pieces from the original hospital intothe site. Site wall pilasters and planters suited best forthese pieces to help reflect the medical campus legacy.These elements help soften and enhance thearchitecture while creating “garden rooms” where usershave the freedom and control to interact with theseasonal plantings that provide them with a temporaryescape from their interior environment.Client: Exempla Lutheran Medical CenterLocation: Wheat Ridge, COCompletion: 2010Services: Entitlements, Concept Design through DesignDevelopment, Construction Documentation and ConstructionAdministration.Team: H+L Architecture Site Master Plan

  16. 16. Craig Hospital Mike Utley Terrain Park
  17. 17. Mike Utley Terrain ParkThe Mike Utley Terrain Park at Craig Hospital was designed topromote positive health outcomes for individuals recoveringfrom spinal cord or traumatic brain injuries. The Park is anexterior training facility and was originally an idea suggestedby one of the Hospitals physical therapists. The design intentwas to provide a safe training facility in close proximity to thehospital where physical therapists could work with theirpatients, navigating challenging elements they will encounterin everyday life.Required training elements were strategically placed in thepark. Beginners are able to maneuver with relative ease thengraduate to more challenging features. As with any project,budget was a major factor. H+Ls team identified a designthat would work within the budget parameters. CraigHospitals Foundation realized the importance of this projectand began a whirlwind fundraising effort. The major donor forthe park was The Mike Utley Foundation, contributing over75% of the needed funds. The remaining funds came fromadditional donors and a donor paver program.Client: Craig HospitalAward: CCASLA Merit Award, 2008Location: Englewood, COCompleted: 2008Services: Programming, ConceptDesign through Design Development,Construction Documentation andConstruction Administration.Team: H+L Architecture
  18. 18. Longmont United Hospital ED“Garden of Peace”
  19. 19. Longmont United Hospital ED Addition and“Garden of Peace”Several outdoor spaces were created as part of the newemergency addition to Longmont United Hospital. The “Gardenof Peace” resulted from a 40 foot space separation requirementbetween the existing hospital and the new ED. This connectionlinks the existing hospital wing to the main public pavilion andserves as a shortcut between the buildings. The courtyardmimics a mountain forest to evoke a sense of tranquility andspirituality. The serpentine walkway weaves users through adense grove of Aspen trees and ground plantings dotted withaccent boulders to their destination. Small seating spaces alongthe walkway aligned with specially selected site furniture inviteusers to slowdown, relax and enjoy the intimate outdoorsetting. This space has developed into a valuable outdooramenity accessible to all.Client: Longmont United HospitalLocation: Longmont, COCompleted: 2008Services: Entitlements, Concept Design through Design Development, Fund Raising, Construction Documentation and Construction Administration.Team: H+L Architecture
  20. 20. Indian Peaks Medical Center MasterPlan & Urgent Care Center Indian Peaks Medical Center Master PlanAn 65 acre greenfield site in the town of Frederick,Colorado was chosen for Longmont United to expandtheir services in an underserved area. The existing sitehas been a farmstead from multiple generations.Agricultural fields of alfalfa and corn dominate thelandscape. Under the surface of the site numerousmine shafts, fractures and subsidence areas wereidentified, so careful attention was taken whendeveloping the master plan for the new facilities andfuture expansion. Additional Gas wells and irrigationditches transverse the site leaving limited area for themedical centers development.The master plan for the future medical center includeda full hospital with ED services and MOB’s. The firstphase of the project is a 36,000 square foot UrgentCare Center.Site design concepts for the Center are to minimize thedisturbance of the existing agriculture crops so theycan still be farmed with this development and eachadditional expansion of the medical center. Great efforthas been to design and control storm runoff from eachphased development and return it back to theagriculture lands and adjacent ditches. Ideas of porouspavement parking stalls and bio-swales/infiltrationplanters are part of the master drainage and stormrunoff control plan.Native high plain plantings and local materials havebeen specified to keep the Center and futuredevelopment phases in tune with the surroundingagriculture landscape.Client: Longmont United HospitalLocation: Frederick, COCompleted: Phase 1 Urgent Care Center 2014Services: Entitlements, Concept Design through Design Development and Construction Documentation.Team: H+L Architecture Urgent Care Center Site Plan
