The concept for the Sentara Leigh Hospital Parking Deck was to create a value-conscious structure that reflects the materials and primary architectural elements depicted on the coming hospital addition. Vertical elements like the stairs and elevator anchor the front corners. To further break up the mass and horizontal lines on the hospital side, center areas of the front elevation are treated differently. All this reduces the visible length of the garage.
Primary materials include brick, stone, and exposed concrete. The brick and stone selection coordinate with the design for the adjacent hospital. The glass and window frames for the stairs and elevator towers will also match the colors on the coming hospital addition – and be divided in a similar size. As part of a master plan of renovation and expansion, the new garage has the ability to house a minimum of 400 vehicles. This project was completed under a design-build contract with Whiting-Turner; Baskervill’s scope included architectural and MEP engineering services.
