A Little History

These are some of the oldest and most diverse neighborhoods in Albuquerque. It is also an area that has seen a good deal of change in the last few years.

Dr. Unverzagt hired a neighborhood architect, Jon Anderson (www.jonandersonarchitect.com), to update and modernize the building and to turn it in to a clinic. The intent was to open up the space and increase the amount of natural light inside to create a lively but comfortable space for both working and visiting.

There is also an art space inside the clinic to provide unique opportunities for patients to address their health concerns. Each of the design elements was scrutinized from the perspective of health — the light, the colors and the furnishings as well as the safety of the materials used in the renovations. For instance, they have used low VOC products in the paints, varnishes, cabinets, etc. They also have attempted to take a "green" approach to building construction and operation — 90% of the building's electricity comes from renewable sources.
