Architecture, Inc. led the design of Inova Health System‘s new Sports Medicine facility with Dr. Robin West—the Lead Team Physician for the Washington Nationals baseball team and Head Team Physician for the Washington Redskins football team. The goal of the integrated facility is to provide comprehensive and personalized care to athletes of all ages and abilities, while serving as a hub for the Sports Medicine Institute.
The 20,000 sf sports medicine facility, located on the Inova Center for Personalized Health campus in Northern Virginia (a former Exxon campus), includes a 13,000 sf outpatient clinic, physical therapy, an EXOS performance gym, and a 5,000 sf outdoor synthetic turf field for patient evaluation and performance.
The facility was constructed on two of the exisitng building’s three floors. A new elevator now connects the lower gym to the upper clinic waiting area with views over the outdoor sports fields.
Bold features—including 20-foot ceilings, wood-patterned floors, and bright colors—reference the patients’ familiar sports arena environment. Playful cylindrical spaces, reflecting the existing building’s circular entrance lobby, glow from colorful glass linings while larger-than-life graphics inspire the injured and encourage their re-commitment to a challenging recovery.
