Montana Eyecare

Mosaic Architecture
428 No. Last Chance Gulch
Helena, MT 59601

After engaging in several studies on how best to expand their optometry clinic, Montana Eyecare launched construction of a new clinic and retail showroom directly west of their existing clinic. The design creates a transition from the residential neighborhood on the west and the very busy Montana Avenue intersection to the east. Using a hierarchy of gable shapes and mix of wood siding and brick veneer, the building successfully evolves from residential scale to commercial along the north elevation. A lighted glass corner attracts customers to Montana Eyecare’s significantly expanded selection of eye and sunglasses. The new 12,000 sf clinic provides expanded display space for over 1,500 frames as well as generous amounts of natural daylight, open dynamic reception and waiting areas, and comfortable exam rooms. The result is a design that increases staff efficiency, provides better customer comfort, expands the retail business, and allows for clinic growth.
