A story from a private clinic
The building manager of a well-known private healthcare facility in Switzerland was recently tasked with updating the clinic's rooms and adjoining wellness centre. Some of the walls were marked and looking somewhat tired, especially in areas of heavy traffic. The existing design was dated and disjointed, and there was an issue regarding the level of privacy available in the various areas of the wellness centre pool area, with users complaining of being visible through the glass panels that were originally installed to ensure that the space made use of natural light. The budget for the refurbishment of the areas was limited, and following a discussion with an interior design consultant, the building manager decided to avoid costly and disruptive construction work that would have involved repairing walls and replacing furniture to increase privacy, instead opting for 3M Architectural Finishes to help achieve his various goals.
3M DI-NOC materials were used to cover walls, furniture and partitions, giving the building manager and his design consultant a wide range of textures and colours to combine and choose from, to create a unique and fresh look for each location, with a natural design flow between the various areas in the clinic. 3M Fasara Glass Finishes were used as a stylish solution to the issue of privacy in both the clinic rooms and the pool area of the wellness suite.
3M Architectural finishes provide healthcare facility owners and managers a way to design and renovate quickly and efficiently, with minimal disruption to the busy healthcare environment. Bring luxurious wood and marble textures into the design with 3M DI-NOC interior and exterior finishes.
