“The adaptive reuse strategy here is really smart.  The way the public space has been laid out is really natural and follows the retail typology of a storefront.  The jury really enjoyed the feeling that you are going to see something interesting through the windows.  At a point in society where healthcare is only going to be more important, this project resonates in a really positive way.  It’s definitely on-brand for Kaiser, but you get the sense that they took a risk and the jury really appreciated that.”
