BALA EYE CARE
BALA CYNWYD, PA
Bala Eye Care is located at the intersection of Belmont Avenue and Levering Mill Road on a site formerly blighted by an abandoned gas station. This site presented many challenges such as environmental contamination, inappropriate zoning classification, excessive setback requirements, and complex site grading. The final design was heavily endorsed by the municipality and highly supported by the surrounding neighborhood as a successful and sensitive resolution to an intersection that was in dire need of revitalization.
Inside the 5,000 square foot medical office building, the support functions and exam room promote a thriving and regionally recognized ophthalmology practice. The facility also includes a boutique retail optical shop, positioned at the main entrance to the building located directly across from the waiting room and reception. The combination of these functions offers a continuous open plan that extends the full width of the building and is flooded with natural light through its many generous windows and liberal glass entry.
