Clinica Romero

Lehrer Architects as Architects

This project is a transformation – through Interior tenant improvements – of a dark, aging, and tired 10,000 sq. ft. non-profit clinic, to a bright and happy place that is connected to the outdoors and proudly serving its immigrant community.

Caption

Despite a tiny budget, the client, and previous ill-fated renovation attempts, the architects completely re-imagined movement through the building, emphasizing openness and connectedness to the out-of-doors and natural light. Bold graphics line the newly carved, interior streets and improve wayfinding.   The architecture honors the namesake of the clinic with the Iconography of the newly sainted St. Romero.

Caption

Most significant community contribution:

The non-profit clinic mainly provides healthcare to an underserved Central-American immigrant population. In addition to healthcare, the clinic provides several heavily programmed community rooms. It is a new place of pride of this important Angeleno community.

Caption

Light and color unify a previously disjointed building with an existing program that was chopped into incomprehensible spaces.  This design introduces continuity and familiarity for all users, from healthcare providers to the ill.
