Taking into account the fact that a visit to the doctor is accompanied by mixed feelings of anticipation, expectation and consequently anxiety for the visitor, our common goal was to create a calm, comfortable and friendly ambience.
The new clinic was located in a standard 1960s apartment, which had to be radically renovated to meet its new purpose. Our primary goal was to combine the functional needs and specifications of a state-of-the-art clinic with the creation of a minimal and welcoming space.
The main elements of the redesign were the removal of the conventional compartmentalization of the existing spaces. The reception area is, for functional and symbolic reasons, located in the central zone of the open-plan space. The Doctors' Office is directly adjacent to the secretariat, whereas the two examination rooms are located in an independent zone, ensuring privacy
Warm, earthy shades and neutral tones of gray alternate throughout the rooms. The only intense color, the color of lime, was chosen for the leather furniture of the examination rooms.
