ReDerm Medical Spa
We had the pleasure of working with the Fante family in building their extended medical office to become the official location of Rederm. c2Design previously worked on their home back in 2013 and couldn't wait to be working with them again.
Working directly with the building architects to build out the adjacent space of their existing medical office, Fante Eye and Face Center, allowed C2 to design the layout and the overall aesthetics. It was important that the layout created individual rooms that were spacious and luxurious for individual medical spa treatments while maintaining a sense of overall style that was comfortable. The east side rooms feature clearstory windows to let in natural light from the west, while the west side rooms had floor to ceiling windows that were factored into the design and dressed with white sheers. Each individual room has a unique colored accent wall to bring a more spacious feel.
While speaking of paint colors, a cool color palette of grays, whites, and aquas were used throughout the whole space. Can lights on a dimmer were centered down the hallway so that they could control the ambience as the natural day light turned from morning to afternoon. It was important to bring in a lot of textural elements to give dimension and a comforting touch to the modern, cool space.
Luxury vinyl tile, also referred to as LVT, was used in the medical rooms that resembled a weathered driftwood but durable enough to withstand heavy traffic. This flooring was laid in a herringbone pattern giving an upgraded visual interest. Down the hallway and reception area, commercial carpet tiles were placed in a quarter turn pattern to Break up the long hallway and also create movement with the subtle circular pattern.
Commercial grade finishes were used in all areas to meet medical office standards. The rooms required custom medical spa beds that are very ergonomic was very important to the staff for comfort and function. Each bed is covered in a gray leather to go with the cool palette. A walnut, espresso color was selected for the veneer built ins with a luxuriours quartz stone top. Stone and tile mosaic backsplashes were used above each sink which featured brushed nickle hardware.
The client always comes first at Rederm. It was important to create a relaxing yet refreshing atmosphere from the first walk through the double glass doors. A local artist designed the reception desk made out of reclaimed wood slabs and metal elements to create a modern look. Behind the front desk, a custom built display cabinet highlights Fantes' personal line of skin products.
Clients have many different seating options in the 'VIP lounge' that differ vastly from usual waiting room chairs. A gray metallic vinyl on gray and aqua tweed adorns a round settee that shines under a gorgeous bubble chandelier. A matching chair in the corner carries the same tweed fabric throughout the room. A loveseat is flanked on either side by "nest" chairs. These pieces peak interest right away! As soon as you take a seat you feel like you are receiving a warm hug. This was important to c2Design because we wanted the clients to feel that they were allowed their own personal space even in a public seating area. To create the natural elements of fire and water, a fountain and fireplace can also been viewed from the seating area. The fireplace is an ethanol gas insert which means no power and no gas lines are needed which was great for this commercial space build out. Stacked stone featuring white quartz brings a little sparkle to the exterior of the fireplace and provides the perfect central focal feature to this intimate room.
Thank you Rederm for allowing us create your new office space from concept to finished product. It was a pleasure to work with your staff and meet their needs for them to do their jobs. We hope you are as re-energized in your new office space as your clients are when they come in for services!
