Nouriche is a medical aesthetics and wellness center offering complete health services for inside and out. This program provided the design team with the challenge of blending an internal medicine clinic and a medical spa within the same space and on a limited budget. As patients enter the lobby, they are greeted by the receptionist who guides them to the appointed medical clinic waiting area or the spa relaxation room, both providing privacy from the public. The spa rooms and clinical exam rooms reach to the back of the space, seamlessly joining together at the nurse’s station and minor procedure room. This floor plan allows separation between the two uses while also making things easier on the staff due to the central location.

The lobby and retail space have good visibility to the street frontage in order to provide ample merchandising opportunities. Rich, natural materials were used as accents within the public space to pull the eye in, drawing passerby on foot and vehicular traffic to take notice. Dark bamboo flooring graces the lobby and corridors, allowing the patient to feel the warmth of the space. Italian glass tile illuminated by gem-like pendant lighting defines the wall behind the reception desk and accents the custom millwork displays that showcase the high-end skincare products.
