The architectural method followed three main phases:
1 / Removal of the former interior partitions. 2 / Recognition of the basic structure of the remaining imprint. 3 / Establishing the new concept, indicating a new way of functioning. The multiple successive ‘readings’ of the floorplan reveal several underlying dyadic relations in structure, in form and in function. They indicate a separation between what is considered to be a more ‘private’ life in a clinic (doctor’s office, surgery room) and a more ‘public’ one (reception and waiting areas). This separation of opposing qualities as the ‘private’ and the ‘public’, the ‘inner’ and ‘outer’, the built and the void, leads to the formulation of two equivalent shells embracing the opposing functions. The idea is formulated by two elliptic contours opposing each other and been placed in the centre of the plan, creating a mirroring structure. This new formulation restores the preexisting internal symmetry of the space. The two contours extend until the outer limits of the apartment walls carving the volume of the main partition element, a buffer zone of an atypical storage furniture. The selection of the materials, oak wood and white lacquer surfaces, combine the sense of cleanliness and hygiene with the essence of familiarity and hospitality.
