The Water Street Medical office complex consists of several single-story angular buildings positioned around a circular driveway with a small pavilion at its center.  The buildings offer 40,000 square feet of office space and the pavilion functions as a pharmacy.  The development, in its informal layout and overall warmth, is much like an Aaron Green-designed home.  With this complex, Green’s intent was to provide a comfortable environment for patients, as opposed to a conventional hospital experience.
