PLANNED PARENTHOOD OF SOUTHWEST AND CENTRAL FLORIDA
This facility, completed in December 2008, is the headquarters for Southwest and Central Florida and serves the needs of the community from Winter Haven to Ft. Myers. This 27,650 S.F. facility is designed to be secure yet inviting; the vibrant building becomes increasingly transparent as it gains height. Three light wells around the entry, combined with glazed walls surrounding them allow natural light to get dispersed throughout the building.
A sense of security is provided by placing the ground floor windows up high and allowing the storefront space to be leased back to the community. With spaces designed to create Zen peacefulness, including a ground level sculpture court with bamboo, and a curved entry wall, the facility provides a welcoming and accepting presence.
