Rehabilitation of Hoover Pavilion is the first building project of Stanford Health Care $5 billion Renewal Program to rebuild and modernize its facilities. The building occupies an important intersection that serves as a gateway to the academic and medical campuses. After extensive work, it serves as headquarters for several community physicians and primary care clinics and houses the main branch of the Stanford Health Library.
“The careful renovation preserves the 1931 Ziggurat Modern exterior of the building, a very interesting and time specific design response to the original architecture. It is the only early building at the campus edge and is a constant reference to the community of the university. It provides a sensitive venue for bringing the community to the campus. The conversion of a historic hospital to a state of the art clinical facility was extremely complex and should encourage the reuse of architecturally and culturally significant healthcare buildings,” says George R. Tingwald, Director of SHC Medical Planning.
