Long but narrow space 15 ft wide by 65 ft long needs to be converted from grocery store to medical office small strip of land behind building to be converted into open air play area/waiting area for kids, survey of land enclosed. Medical office needs at least three examining rooms which need to have enough space for a sink an examining table, a desk and a cabinet, also needed ,reception area and waiting room. The problems are the narrow space, and the lighting, there is only one source of natural light - the front door area, and ordinances prevent addition of windows. Funds are extremely limited so I need ideas that won't be too expensive. Pls note that ADA requires space in doorways for a wheel chair and a small ramp from front doo
A design that combines creativity with practicality, I'd like to have a smooth flow from the entrance through the waiting room to the reception area there will be a lab/weighing room and if possible separate areas for the two main age groups, babies and kids vs teens.Maybe a small room for very sick babies or newborns
I mentioned limited funds, there is a wall that separates the anterior part of the building from a small area in the back, I am willing to knock that down, but I cannot knock down anything such as a wall containing a supporting beam and I can't put in windows,because of city ordinances. The open play area at the back will be partially paved over, I need it to be as low maintenance as possible
Affordability , practicality and creativity. I need a smooth flow, I like wave forms
From front door to back door 65 ft , width 15 ft
I went to take the measurements myself, pls be aware that the space is not one continuous rectangle,after the fridges were removed I found that there are some areas where the wall on the left projects out a little which narrow the space, I tried to draw it and for your convenience I subdivided it according to the dimensions. The wall separates the passageway which leads upstairs from the store area, so the full space is not 16' foot across as the survey shows but 11 ft which then widens out to 14
1) Section A from window to first outward projection of wall 4'x11'
2)Section B Area of projection to an area where wall slants at a slight angle 12'x11.5'
3)Section C Slant/Angulation of one wall 1.5' x11'
4)Section D 7'x 11 '
5)Section E /F Room widens out 16' long x 14'
There is then the wall that I said might be demolished it leads to the last section 18 ft x 12'wide, including a bathroom and a separate side/store room
The shutters are 70"x9'tall and 73'x 9 ft respectively
from floor to ceiling is 8'10''
the steps are 10'' x 43.5'' and 4''x 43.5'
