DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Darwin

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Hospital space

INSPIRATION:
Human artistry is to modification of countenance created by God what deconstruction is to reorganizing and rethinking of existing forms. When developing our design theme to this medical aesthetics clinic, we made an attempt to deconstruct human torso. The human profile was transformed into curved lines of the room, in which the building mass in pure white made a representation of muscle lines with tension.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This design project is for a cosmetic surgery clinic located in a commercial building in downtown Taipei. The overall design concept originates from the curves of human figures.The buttock curves together with the up-going breast line successfully spell out that human figure is the theme of interior design.The Evolutionism by Charles Darwin is presented taking the form of medical aesthetics.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The space has been designed into three consulting areas, two clinic rooms, three further consultation rooms, three post-procedure massage rooms, three operation rooms, one recovery room, and staff administrative area.Under the limitation of an old building with scattered beams and pillars and a clearance as small as of 2.2 meters, straight lines of the ceiling become orderly guidance to the light, while the lighting itself creates movement in the white and steady space. Rectangular lighting is used in the hallway leading to the operation room to convey a sense of changing time and create a three-dimensional axis of time from coming-in to going-out.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in Dec. 2013 and finished in Jan. 2015 in Taipei.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Main features of the design consist of plasma glass for privacy control, iris recognition systems for access control, ventilation systems for positive & negative operation room pressure control, and other professional equipment for medical use. Limitation arising from insufficient ceiling height is one the difficulties needs to be overcome while planked ceiling and unique lighting design adds more touches to the atmosphere. Thanks to PMMA and guide plate technology, a special acrylic lighting system has been adopted to meet the requirement of homogenous yet glareless illumination in operation room without sacrificing aesthetics.
