The brief was to create a space reflecting Balmain Village Health’s (BVH) unique offering: women and children’s health and to steer away from mainstream medical practices. Balmain is a trendy inner-west suburb, steeped in history with numerous heritage-listed buildings. Honouring this we retaining as many period features as possible to work harmoniously with contemporary elements. Finishes were chosen to create a calm and peaceful space. A green wallpaper mural wraps around two walls in the reception. In the same hue, handmade green tiles clad the counter. Calm pinks, wicker and warm timbers were selected to compliment and add softness.
We have challenged the traditional concept of medical practices being cold and sterile. We have a created a medical practice that sets itself apart from mainstream practices. hen stepping into BVH, patients are welcomed into a calm, warm, inviting and relaxing environment. The innovation is featured simply in the idea that a medical practice doesn’t need to be conventional. “We have executed this with a sensitive and carefully curated palette of finishes, textures and lighting.” Says Alexandra Morris, director of MorrisCo Design
