Upper Peninsula Health Plan

 
 

Upper Peninsula Health Plan

On the east end of the three-acre Liberty Way development is an office building which houses the corporate headquarters for one of the Upper Peninsula’s largest healthcare providers, Upper Peninsula Health Plan (UPHP). The design includes a mix of private and open office spaces disbursed among formal and informal meeting and conference areas. This robust mix accommodates generous office and meeting spaces for the corporation’s key management and administration professionals.

In addition to on-grade parking, Liberty Way also includes a two-level underground parking structure. Accessible via a vertical circulation tower, the parking structure extends below an on-site driveway to connect all buildings within the development. These parking options provide plentiful spaces for employees and guests while adapting to extreme weather conditions prevalent in the Upper Peninsula.

Modern Sustainability

The goal of this remodel focused on updates to the interior and exterior of the home that reflect a clean and contemporary feel while creating a deeper sense of family and togetherness. This was achieved through room reconfigurations that lean on the advances of green technologies and sustainable practices. In an effort to respect generational lifestyle and privacy preferences, differing and subtle design solutions were employed.

The resulting design of this 2,000 sf remodel and addition ties seamlessly into the architectural character of the original home. The remodel involved renovating the entire interior and exterior of the home and incorporating new spaces such as a breakfast nook and in-law suite above the two-car garage. The first floor renovation involved modifications for an open floor plan to combine the family room, kitchen, and breakfast nook. Further renovations involved updating the dining room, living room, and study. On the second floor, renovations expanded the master suite and added two new bedrooms.

Design solutions for this mixed-use building, located in the geographic center of this active suburban “main street”, involved extensive renovations to transform a former Borders bookstore into an attractive, multi-tenant building. The highly transparent design solution creates a dynamic, flexible 130’ facade unifying the expansive streetscape.

Originally constructed in the 1920’s as four separate one- and two-story buildings, our designers focused on recapturing that scale by transforming the facade. The composition is organized around the existing divisions between buildings and is emphasized by a center canopy-covered entrance. The entrance is flanked by a punched opening volume and a curtain wall of regular rhythms.

Overall, the composition is grounded by its masonry mass, but creates movement through its snaking two-story stone banding. The simple material palette, textures, and detailing are subdued in order to provide the proper framework to effectively showcase each retailer.
