VEIN CENTER HOUSTON WINS AT 2004 DESIGN AWARDS FOR NEW FACILITY CONVERSION

HOUSTON , Texas— (Business Wire)–April 29, 2004–Vein Center Houston was awarded this past weekend with one of the most prestigious architectural awards from the American Institute of Architecture. The 2004 Design Awards recognized Vein Center Houston with its architectural creativity, transformation and overall conversion from a store front setting to its new use as a medical facility. Vein Center Houston, a cosmetic and medical vein treatment center, was concepted by cardiovascular surgeon, Mario Kapusta, M.D., who oversaw and managed the creative direction on the development. Kapusta hired a team to collaborate on the project, including architecture by Morris Architects — Dan Searight, AIA, senior designer; and construction by Keith Blair and Associates. For continuity in its thematic design, Kapusta also interviewed multiple agencies before hiring Ideation One, Inc. to develop its corporate identity, Web site and launch its advertising campaign.
The challenge was to convert an abandoned convenience store into a state-of-the-art cosmetic and medical treatment center for a cardiovascular surgeon, in seven months. Working within the confines of the existing structure, the architects created a contemporary design with well-ordered space, a soothing environment, and respect for patient privacy.”As proud as I am about the award, I truly thank the team we put together in making this dream a reality,” said Kapusta. “And the real reward is hearing compliments from our patients who can now enjoy the finest medical care in an award-winning facility,” he added.

With over 25% of the population possessing vascular disorders and medically treatable vein diseases, the center was a very welcome addition to the prestigious West University and adjacent neighborhoods.

Vein Center Houston has also received recognition on Dr. Kapusta’s authored publishings, its experienced medical staff, and its medical technologies, including its brand new state-of-the-art laser.
