Coastal Medical Reception, Sunset Beach

Set in the busy neighbourhood of Sunset Beach, this medical practice was calling for a contemporary coastal design that did not include the typical coastal decor such as anchors, seashells and portholes. We wanted this space to reflect the Cape Cod architectural design by Enrica van der Linden, and the professional, innovative work of the medical practice, to create a calm, relaxing and practical environment for patients.

Recent photographs of the infamous Cape Town sunset were added to the reception which created the perfect palette for the new look and feel. Instead of working from a standard white space, we paired the beautiful ocean tones and pops of orange and pink, with natural beachwood furniture and accessories; pulling the colours through to the gorgeous rug beneath. These elements, in addition to the natural light that pours through the skylight, makes you feel as if you are in the reception of an island paradise.ย 

The practice had certain specifications we needed to follow in terms of hygiene, cleanliness and access. We made use of anti-bacterial and easy-to-clean fabrics while concentrating on a flow that was easily accessible for wheelchair users and physically challenged patients.ย 

The final design shows off a beautiful amalgamation of relaxed seascapes and modern architectural finishes to perfectly match the unique brand of the medical practice.
