The UCP, Golden Glades – Part 1

The UCP Home, Golden Glades, Florida.

University of Miami SOA, Spring 2014

Part 1 : Use site analysis and appropriate zoning codes (Miami RU-3), research and personal experience with staff and patients to develop a design concept, 3d massing and programmatic floor plans. Basic renderings, sections, and elevations also required.

This project is one that was taken on by Professor and Architect David Scott Trautman in collaboration with the entire UCP Baby House Project Board. The ultimate goal of this studio project is to design not for ourselves, not only for the sake of making something that is of architectural excellence but more importantly to provide a place that is comforting and allows the 15 residents of this home to learn to regulate their stress and anxiety and maximize their development, self-control and overall psychological well-being.

Concept:  The UCP HOME strives to provide comprehensive, seamless and cognitively innovative patient, staff and family centered health care to guide and improve the health status of the UCP clients we serve. The residence will offer an environment where clients and employees are personally and professionally valued, recognized and supported. It will be a center of educational excellence by continuously evaluating and adopting innovative practices in technology and healthcare. This child friendly and state-of-the-art facility will not only be one of medical excellence, but as they live, play, learn and most importantly grow, the residence provides our community with a place to call home. A place in which they feel they belong.
