A clean, minimal, multidisciplinary design by The UP Studio creates a unique identity for Mudgil Practices, a new joint dermatology and dentistry practice. The co-location of two practices enables the doctors to significantly reduce their expenses by sharing key medical equipment, office equipment, and staff.
The resulting office includes a dermatology zone, a dentistry zone, mini- and full-sized testing laboratories, shared and private offices for each practice, and an intimate shared waiting area for patients. The simple and clean aesthetic carries throughout the design, including the back-of-house lab and staff areas.
Through a multidisciplinary design process in which UP provided architecture, interior design, brand design, signage and wayfinding, custom topography, web design, and collateral coordination, UP presented a unified design that simplified every aspect of a patient’s experience in the space.
The office’s main design feature—an extruded, woven ceiling plane—maps patient, doctor, and staff circulation patterns. It also unifies the two practices within a shared space. The ceiling leads patients through the office; this wayfinding strategy and a straightforward plan organization eliminate commonly confusing circulation patterns found in doctors’ offices.
By designing all elements—architecture, interior, and brand design—simultaneously, UP created a visual language that is consistent throughout the project.
