Blue Ridge Medical Office Building
Both the interior and exterior suggest a contemporary mountain aesthetic with stone, wood, and stucco.
Like many of the buildings in the North Carolina mountains, this 40,000 sf structure was built on a sloped lot. RdM Architecture conceived a design with three stories above grade at the street level and an extra floor partially below grade for lease and mechanical space. Both the interior and exterior suggest a contemporary mountain aesthetic with stone, wood, stucco, metal roof, covered entries, and colored glazing systems. The building was placed on the lot to maximize views from each floor’s private space, minimize the effect of the sloped lot, minimize parking distances to building entrances, provide convenient two-way traffic on site and several outdoor patios.
