Clinics are often associated with rather clean and surgical spaces that treasures function over aesthetics and the client. If we think of a beauty clinic, the logic should be reverted, valuing the client and the brand first. The internal organization will pragmatically and accordingly follow this premise.

The skin becomes our number one client. Made of skin, as we all are.
Being the external layer that covers our muscles, bones and organs, it also guards our emotions, feelings and backgrounds. The skin is a reflection of one's persona whether it's young, soft, old, wrinkled, white, yellow or black.
 
We use different materials and textures to reflect the variety of skin tones and ageing there is, that are brought together in one single narrative.
Soft and reflecting materials represent a young and healthy skin; as harder and rougher portraits an older and wrinkled one.

The whole design is centered around a "Glass Box".
A seating and waiting area, where colored glass layers are placed over the existing building structure, made out of exposed concrete and natural stone tiles.
 
New and Old. Together.
