Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - BUSINESS & FARM -

A pe­di­atric clinic de­signed by Mar­lon Black­well Ar­chi­tects re­ceived a 2017 Health­care De­sign Award from the Amer­i­can In­sti­tute of Ar­chi­tects’ Acad­emy of Ar­chi­tec­ture for Health.

The firm’s de­sign for the Har­vey Pe­di­atric Clinic in Rogers was among seven win­ning de­signs cho­sen from sub­mis­sions by the best ar­chi­tec­ture firms across the United States. Awards were handed out re­cently at the Amer­i­can In­sti­tute of Ar­chi­tects/Amer­i­can Col­lege of Health­care Ar­chi­tects Sum­mer Lead­er­ship Sum­mit in Chicago.

Black­well holds the E. Fay Jones Chair in Ar­chi­tec­ture and is a distin­guished pro­fes­sor in the Fay Jones School of Ar­chi­tec­ture and De­sign at the Univer­sity of Arkansas, Fayet­teville. His firm is based in Fayet­teville and he is an Amer­i­can In­sti­tute of Ar­chi­tects fel­low.

The Har­vey Pe­di­atric Clinic has a cayenne panel — a cus­tom color de­vel­oped specif­i­cally for the project — that wraps the build­ing’s south side of the sec­ond level; blue glass in the sky­light; and a small niche that gives doc­tors space for re­search and re­flec­tion. A dou­ble-height flex space on the west end of the build­ing holds a mez­za­nine with a wall of glass and is the hub for the ad­min­is­tra­tive staff. A ground-floor break room looks onto a small porch and gar­den.

Other awards the Har­vey Pe­di­atric Clinic re­ceived in­clude: a 2017 Amer­i­can Ar­chi­tec­ture Award from The Chicago Athenaeum: Mu­seum of Ar­chi­tec­ture and De­sign and The Euro­pean Cen­tre for Ar­chi­tec­ture Art De­sign and Ur­ban Stud­ies; a 2017 Gulf States AIA Merit Award; a 2017 PLAN Award (health care cat­e­gory); was se­lected for the short list for the 2017 World Ar­chi­tec­ture Fes­ti­val; and the de­sign team will present the project in Novem­ber at the fes­ti­val in Ber­lin, Ger­many.
