Beauty, health and well-being are some of the terms that are both debated and recurrent present in the history of humanity; Clinique La Prairie, with its first Aesthetics & Longevity center outside of Switzerland, located in the center of Madrid, wants to continue being identified with these concepts. As pioneers in cell therapies who are considering acting against the aging process, where technical innovation is at the level of medical care, this Clinique is linked to a sophisticated luxury hospitality, this is where the challenge of this project seems to be: how to translate and build all these concepts to the space / time of an aesthetic medicine clinic?
The project responds to an understanding of the design of a medical space, about 600 m2, intended for human care and maintenance, as the interior of a body from a transversal approach whose views cover very different fields, which correspond both to the proximity of human relationships, ergonomics, the sensitive world and consumption as well as the technical and professional approach necessary to decide the treatment, control its execution and dimension the spaces for their use, designing the functional elements and incorporating the conditioning system and illumination.
The physical and material structure of the public space (reception, waiting areas and corridors) is organized, both in plan and in section, by white curved walls and dark stone floors; This –soft- system not only enhances and adds value to the transitional spaces of the center, but also facilitates the movement of customers in liquid form through the spaces.
The rest of the clinic -the private areas - (cabinets and offices), maintain the same criteria as the public area, except that white is also present in the pavements, and is characterized by spatial fluidity, being configured as a succession of rooms where both doctors and patients can switch from one to the other without interruption.
The new Clinique La Prairie Madrid is a non-linear interior that symbolizes cleanliness, purity, and hygrothermal comfort where, in addition to a comprehensive medical experience, it offers the client an architectural experience in which the senses intervene.
