When it came to the planning, implementation and furnishing of this 600 sqm medical practice, the clinic's aim was to relieve patients' fear of a doctor's appointment by providing an inspiring and mindful environment. Instead of narrow corridors and small rooms, there are open spaces offering a view of the lake and mountains around Zurich. The exam rooms were moved away from the window facade towards the core of the building, creating a semi-public space where all visitors can enjoy a panoramic 360-degree view. In the same spirit of openness and transparency, the physicians share a common office, which is visible to patients from the lobby. The team's break rooms are spacious and attractively furnished. Right from the planning stage, the architects and client had turned to Vitra for assistance with the interior design: the combined product portfolio of Vitra and Artek made it possible to span the diverse functional specifications of private, public and workplace environments.
