Irvine, Calif. (September 16, 2020) – Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, today announced construction is complete on the new Keck Medicine of University of Southern California (USC) Buena Park Oncology Clinic located at 5832 Beach Blvd, Suite 201 in Buena Park, Calif. Ware Malcomb provided interior architecture and design services for the medical office tenant improvement project.

Keck Medicine of USC’s new oncology infusion therapy clinic is located on the second floor of a five-story mixed-use building. The 4,600 square foot facility consists of eight infusion bays, two private infusion treatment rooms, five exam rooms, two nurse stations, seven clinical support rooms, four administrative support rooms, and four single occupancy restrooms.

The interior design uses a centralized circulation layout with the patient examination and clinical administrative support rooms surrounding the internally placed clinical support rooms. The infusion bays are placed within an open space plan at the corner of the suite, which provides ample natural light and views to the outside, while internal mid-height partitions provide a level of privacy to the clients utilizing the infusion bays.

The interior color palette consists of mostly white with a combination of tan, grey, and blue hues that provide a light and relaxing aesthetic. Modern linear pendants along with textured upholstery and wood details provide the space with a level of warmth while maintaining the calm and clean environment appropriate for a clinic.

“An important focus of this project was accommodating all of the clinical requirements of the space within the existing footprint while still focusing on the clean, calming nature of the guest experience,” said Mila Volkova, Director, Healthcare Design of Ware Malcomb’s Irvine office. “Utilizing every square inch and relying heavily on the circulation path, the design team was able to provide all the required exam rooms and infusion bays while still creating an inviting and private environment for guests.”

For over 30 years, the firm’s Healthcare Design studio has completed projects ranging from ground up medical office buildings and tenant improvements to highly specialized OSHPD 1, 2 and 3 facilities.

Ware Malcomb has completed over 20 projects for the USC corporate account since 2014. The firm’s unique Corporate Accounts program spans a variety of industries including education, office, financial, retail, industrial and restaurant across multiple markets. The program facilitates the delivery of consistent, integrated design services for clients, with both local, specialized staff and the vast companywide resources of a North American platform.

The General Contractor for the project was ConAm Building Co.
