New Age Clinic
Wednesday 01 Jul 2015
The New Age clinic is a plastic surgery clinic located on the 12th floor of the Fulya Terrace building in Istanbul. The project represents an affordable and impressive design created by clever and rational thinking during the concept stage by IGLO Architects.
This impressive interior space was achieved through colour, graphical arrangements on the carpets and the design of several furniture and illumination elements.
The two plastic surgeons who founded the clinic requested to have a style which reflected their personality and the aesthetical nature of the job they are doing. The existing plan of the 250 sq. m flat, with 4 rooms and a lobby, was suitable to function as a plastic surgery clinic without any changes to the existing structure. An operation room, consultation room, accounting and archive room were designed without changing the original building plan.
The clinic, which would serve clientele who value aesthetics, was not designed with an ordinary or clinical mindset. The space has an original, modern and smart design to reflect the taste of its clients and ensure taht they felt safe, secure and confident in the practice. IGLO Architects' first task was to set the space apart from clinical spaces defined by a coulour palette of light blue and white, thus bold black and grey elements were utilised throughout. On the ceiling and wall crossings a fluid form was used to symbolise the heartbeat on a cardiogram. This graphical effect defined the style of the furniture as well.
As no structural elements such as suspended ceilings were desired, ceiling and illumination details were both solved by using specially designed stretch ceiling lighting elements. The 5m long desk in the lobby was designed by Iglo especially for the New Age Clinic.
