From the architect. The building is about 1,000 square meter building coverage and located at the heart of the city in Bandung. The client want to make something iconic for the architecture as it will be launch as their first new building concept. The program will consist of huge lobby which also serve as a reception and waiting area, a drug store, doctor's room and twenty two treatment room. The other requirement is service and storage area which have to be attached to the reception due to very high traffic between that two particular area.

Base on the function and other basic requirement we try to generate a design theme from the nature of human skin which is have a elastically and semi permeable character. The skin is analogize with the building "skin" which using a curtain wall using a laminated glass with a fabric inside, randomly mixed with some part using a mirror at the inside. This mix of material give a sense of vibrant and translucent quality as if it is a part of an outer surface of human skin.

The "skin" also "stretching" as a room program from inside and outside protruding the "skin".

This whole building is envelope by a very outer, hard skin which is analogize by a part of perimeter wall and flat roof.

The interior was arrange with a white,creamy and goldish colour scheme to give an impression of clean, high tech, cozy and a touch of exclusivity.

Using illuminated translucent acrylic box, the reception area is composed as a parallel of two horizontal glowing box, running along until protruding the building skin.

The main stair to reach the treatment room at second floor is shaped with a curvature line to symbolized feminism or beauty. Second floor composed with two align corridor that leads to each rooms. Colour scheme is using white pallet as a "canvas" and give a colour with the flower graphic artwork.

Hanging glowing acrylic box running along the ceiling corridor as an accent.

i did mean, it doesn't look appealing.

ooo there's another one.., but still don't like it

That clock IS a little awkward. If you go to Indonesia, you will find a lot of this clock everywhere. It is a very basic clock, it is cheap and you can sometimes get it free too (from any kind of banks and businesses, as a way of marketing). Indonesia does need a good shop that sells good collections of clocks.

Away from the clock discussion, I am not particularly keen on the mirror surface on the facade. It looks nice during sunset and night time (with the purple-ish sky), but on bright sunny days.. it could be really annoying, what about reflections from the sun? I think it should look appealing, since this is a skin care center and operations hours would mostly from 9 - 5.

semi permeable? i like that.

hum, the small clock by the ceiling is kind of awkward?

oliver · July 23, 2009 10:34 PM

oliver · July 23, 2009 10:32 PM
