Overview

Epstein served as the architect, interior designer and full-service engineer (civil, MEP/FP & structural) for the renovation and expansion of an existing 6,000 square foot hospital lobby and surrounding site for Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital Building 200.

Process

The project included the redevelopment of the site work, traffic patterns, and parking to the north of the hospital, which improved the patient approach and drop-off.

The new canopy and exterior wall also helps to provide a revitalized entrance to the existing hospital.

In order to make the expansion happen, the existing precast columns, structure, and roof were removed and the entire volume of space was increased.
