This new facility is a flagship location for Charleston ENT’s many branches. The completely customized design meets the Client’s goals for an excellent patient experience. “Main Street,” a centralized waiting area for all patients, incorporates both loud and quiet spaces, and encourages organized patient way-finding and facilitates communication among the several inter-related yet specialized medical services. In each specialty area, spaces are designed to provide both public and private areas to respect the comfort level of the patient. Bold geometry and a wide array of materials throughout, such as stainless steel shingles, glass transitions, masonry coupled with softer materials and large glass expanses give this project its unique identity. Dr. Gene Brown at Charleston ENT says, “SMHa has walked our organization through multiple construction projects. The real skill that SMHa has is in listening; they take simple comments and can create a design that is practical and completely customized.”
