Our Approach for Executing the Project
Converting a structure that was previously a gymnasium, into an eye care clinic housing consultation rooms and an OT, required precision planning to be implemented on an unconventional layout. The client’s vision of being able to offer comprehensive care in limited floor-space was achieved through the use of innovative designs that enhanced functionality. The ‘A’ used in LEI’s logo, representing an eye, was incorporated in the design concept and introduced in abstract forms on ceilings, back panels, floors, etc. This helps in the patients associating with the brand while bringing an engaging appeal to the interiors and creating an inviting atmosphere, just the way our client had envisioned.
Salient Features of This Project
Waiting area planned in an existing, asymmetric layout in a manner that allowed complete utilization of the available space yet provide spacious seating.
The interior color palette of grey and red, inspired by the logo, accentuated by shades of lime to strengthen brand association while exuding a fresh, contemporary look.
Ophthalmic OT planned with HEPA filters and a separate recovery area with 3 recliner beds.
Our Achievements through This Project
