Dermatology Associates

Type: Medical Office
Location: Tinley Park, Illinois

Size: 5000 SQ FT
Completion: 2004

Situated in a new office complex, this dermatology office began as a shell with bare concrete floors. The client’s vision included a comfortable space that exemplified quality; a unique and contemporary office that distinguished it from competing practices.

Due to the nature of patient skin ailments, color and texture played a pertinent role in the project. Precise lighting was selected to enhance clear skin tones, while warm colors and patterns created a soothing waiting room. A children’s playroom with rich colors was also incorporated into the reception layout to occupy young visitors. Beyond the waiting room, the space consisted of nine private examination rooms, one surgical room, an office for four doctors and a laboratory.

Ensuring patient comfort was key for this client. By utilizing color, texture, pattern and form, the result was a soothing and unique space unlike any other.
