Project summary

The holistically approached design for combined medical practice and cosmetic clinic embodies the way EMKC3 believes healthcare should be going forward. With a thoughtfully designed shared waiting area that is serviced by separate reception spaces, the businesses each reflect a facet of the healthcare sector but demonstrate wellness management is not a mutually exclusive approach.

A timeless and uplifting palette; acoustic, thermal and ergonomic comfort, accompanied by a lush green wall brings calmness and relief to visitors, patients, and staff. Materials and finishes have been selected to present beautifully and endure the rigorous cleaning and disinfecting requirements of the industry.

Put simply, the concept promotes wellness, seeking to supply care to users through foundationally functional design.

New South Wales Jury Presentation

Starting out from an empty shell and seeing EMKC3 create a state-of-the-art medical facility has been a positive journey. Each treatment room is light filled due to the extensive windows and generous full-height glass partitions. The Caesar stone benchtops and electric height adjustable desks are an outlier for medical centres and show care for both the patients and the staff whom occupy the space.

Healthcare involves a great deal of professionalism and compassion and those attributes are exuded not only in the services delivered but the design of this thriving clinic.
