Ocean Views Provide Inspiration For Medical on Miami Fitout
The owners of Medical on Miami had a clear vision for their practice: to provide local and accessible treatment in a new and modern facility. The practice is the flagship tenant for the medical facility, other tenants in the building provide x-ray, pharmaceutical, pathology and a wide range of allied health services to the community.
The owners enlisted Elite's assistance to design and fitout the two-level tenancy, and turn their vision into reality. The design of the medical centre drew inspiration from the ocean views enjoyed from the premises, with a beachy, fresh look chosen for the fitout. The main colour scheme is a pastel blue, which reflects a relaxed, coastal vibe, and is cohesive with the clinic’s location in Miami on the Gold Coast.
Light coloured floorboards are fitted throughout, with stunning images from internationally renowned surf photographer Ted Grambeau adorning the walls. Prism panels are a key design feature of the reception area, providing a striking background behind the crisp white reception desk, and complemented by white pendant lights.
The reception area is unique as it is divided into two separate counters for checking patients in and out, ensuring efficient patient flow during busy times. The large, open-plan reception and waiting area required clever planning to ensure the space would provide a warm and welcoming environment for patients. The solution to use open timber batten screens to divide the space assists the acoustics of the waiting area as well as providing a highly decorative effect. While the space has been split into zones, the openness of the battens still allows reception staff to easily see patients and children in the waiting area.
Medical on Miami Director Heather McLellan-Johnson was full of praise for the design and fitout process.
“Elite understood our vision including colours and features, and executed with precision,” she said.
“Nothing was too difficult, including after service when the project was completed.”
