Regional Medical Center - Manchester, IA
Invision Architecture designed the Regional Medical Center in Manchester, IA, which is a major 2-story addition to an existing hospital anchored by a new patient bed unit and specialty clinic.
The color and materials used for the exterior design are carried into the interior and reflect the warm neutral colors found within the neighboring rural landscape. As part of the sustainable approach to the design, renewable natural materials such as the double flat-lock zinc and clay terracotta panels were utilized which are represented in the new front entrance of the hospital. Terra5 Earth Red terracotta rainscreen cladding and an Alpha Vci.45 subframing system were creatively selected for the design to symbolize the new connection between the hospital and the community.
