Re-created to shape a new direction in healthcare design, this gynecological clinic displays an interesting collection of modern lines, dotted by textured surfaces and colored mostly in white, with furniture pieces showcasing a comforting summer-sky blue. Embryocare occupies a 200 square meters apartment in downtown Athens, near other spaces bearing similar programs. Fabricated by the creative minds of Athens-based architectural studio Mab Architects, this pristine white look suits the clinic, conveying the feeling of cleanliness, while the sculptural reception and waiting room sofas break the monotony with their relaxing cool blue.
The Embryocare clinic was designed after taking down all installations and creating partitions for each necessary space. Here is how the architects describe the project: “The choice of materials with cellular structures is a reference to the nature of the work performed in this surgery. Partitions and wall claddings are made of special translucent sandwich panels, made of two sheets of Perspex and the in-between gap, which is filled with plastic straws of different diameters. The material provides extraordinary effects and changes translucency depending on the viewpoint. White round mosaic tiling is covering all floors and occasionally the same surface splashes also over walls. Glossy white plaster ceiling is randomly pierced by seemingly floating circles of light or circular air vents. All furniture and fittings were carefully chosen to enhance the overall appearance.”
