VA Centers for Rehabilitation, Palo Alto, CA

The center includes three major programs: Polytrauma, Blind Rehabilitation, and Transitional Care. Working closely with rehabilitation professionals we have worked hard to make the building a tool for care. A watchword has been to make it seem ordinary and not prosthetic, while providing subtle features that assist staff in rehabilitation. This has lead us to stress daylight, fresh air and gardens and create a sustainable building.
