Center for Behavioral Health

Bedford, Indiana 2002

Program: 8500 sq ft.  Mental Health Clinic

Status: Construction complete

This facility was designed to create a positive spirit to those facing severe cases of mental illnesses.  Spaces in this clinic are created to treat patients in group areas and individual case rooms.  Maximizing exterior wall area in particular with the inclusion of an inner courtyard, brings daylight in almost every room in the building,  The simplicity of form and cheerful expression of color and material conveys a sense of comfort and calm without being “homey”.  The anthropomorphic column supporting the drive-up canopy is a metaphor of overcoming the “weight” of stresses in our daily lives.
