Located at Southbank Parkland this ‘day-spa’ like establishment offers more than the usual clinical atmosphere generally associated with ultrasound facilities. The client brief was to ensure that the ultrasound experience is made more enjoyable and relaxing by removing the cold and clinical feel of the environment. This was achieved with a casual, fluid built form, textural aesthetic, sensual music and comfortable furnishings. ‘In-room’ comfortable sofas and large screen imagery to show the developing child are on offer for family members to enjoy. The experience is further heightened by free flowing corridors and calming imagery displayed in the ceilings.
“It is an absolute pleasure to recommend Base Architecture for commercial design. Shawn Godwin and his team at Base are young, dynamic and very capable architects whose passion for cool, contemporary and practical design oozes out in every meeting and design solution (…) Base was able to take our brief of removing the usual clinical drabness of a medical practice and instead develop a spa like ambience patients could enjoy whilst still feeling like they were in a safe specialist centre (…) New customers and returning patients, four years later, continue to comment on how beautiful the design is. The whole process was completely new to us but was remarkably enjoyable. The impeccable professionalism of Base made it so easy” – Stephen Sinnot
