Our design for this special treatment centre was centered upon the internal reorganization and renovation of fours floors of a previously office building. Most of the clients for this treatment centre are wheel chair users who will have to navigate the building and wait for appointments within the facility.
We designed rooms and circulation spaces based on the turning circles of wheelchairs so that curving walls on each of the floors now wrap themselves around the original central circulation block and rectangular columns.
The resulting 2000 square metres of space varies on each floor and around each corner, gently widening at entrances to rooms or creating a meeting space at the side of an office. The shape and transparency of the wall adjusts on each floor depending on the programme of the treatments, level of privacy and natural light required.
