Tanner Health Pavilion
The Tanner Health Pavilion presents a new concept for Tanner Health System, a nonprofit regional healthcare network serving several counties in Georgia and Alabama. The Pavilion is a three-story outpatient center located across from the main hospital in the heart of downtown Carrollton, Georgia. Our design concept strategically combined multiple practices so that patients can access a variety of health care needs in one convenient and comprehensive space.
We incorporated materials, lighting and extensive views from nature to impart an experience of the natural world within the modern built environment. The front of the building has grand glass windows to soften the distinction between exterior and interior. The elevators face the adjacent park, revealing the vast landscaped grounds.
Our design uses biophilic design elements to bring the outside in and the inside out. The curved organic shape of the exterior façade blends seamlessly with the greenspace, creating a “front porch” effect. Several water features and outdoor bistro seating offer ample opportunity for visitors to interact with the space.
Tanner’s leadership was committed to preserving the existing greenspace along the frontage of the facility, so the space was designed to extend and connect to the community via Carrollton’s existing GreenBelt, an 18-mile shared-use path that loops around the city. By reinforcing the GreenBelt’s efforts of conservation, recreation and connection, the Health Pavilion reflects Tanner’s dedication to getting healthy and living well.
