The Imaage spa and aesthetic plastic surgery center is a two story medical office building whose design reflects the cutting edge techniques performed within.
An avid art collector and ardent follower of contemporary architecture, the doctor worked closely with JRA to develop a progressive building form that would be both a powerful advertisement for his practice and a carefully abstracted analogy of the work he performs.
The building exterior is marked by three dominant features: an overlapping, softly curving zinc-clad shell enclosing the treatment rooms and waiting areas; a two story glass entrance atrium bounded by a sculptural slate wall and elevator tower; and a monolithic operating room suite block that anchors the composition’s other two elements.
The interior design further identifies the individual character of the three primary programmatic elements: day lit offices and treatment rooms wrap an uninterrupted circulation spine which in turn embraces a gently contoured reception and waiting room; interplay of three overlapping arcs is expressed in the entrance atrium’s grand stair and mezzanine, terrazzo floor, and sculptural ceiling planes; and utility and cleanliness is evident throughout the surgery procedure suite’s carefully choreographed room sequence.
