The Radiology Group brought three business units together. For TRG a key part of the brief was creating a sophisticated environment that was both comfortable as well as practical, that made the patient feel at home in the space that expressed the brand but also offered ‘WOW’ factor. With patients often experiencing an emotional wait – a first baby, a broken limb or a possible terminal illness – the environment needed to be relaxing and calming. A ‘Hamptons’ look’ was a recurring request.
TRG and ABC had similar yet different requirements with both areas continuing the theme but being managed in very different ways. Grooved fibre cement sheets was used throughout the public areas, not only aesthetically but as a cost effective and durable surface, painted a simple off white, which also features in consulting areas.
The treatment of the flooring was key to area identification. Durable timber look surfaces were used throughout the fit-out to soften areas such as CT and MRI rooms and consulting areas. Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen in Resene Pumice, Resene Powder Blue and Resene Indian Ink on walls adds depth and interest with metallic, bold fabrics and bursts of colour showcase the brand. Resene Ignite metallic was specified for the feature ceiling in the TRG reception to complement the copper light fittings without darkening the space.
For the ABC area that caters exclusively to women, the Hamptons’ brief was taken further. Resene Powder Blue was used as a calming highlight colour in the reception, wait areas and corridor ends. Soft broadloom carpet in natural tones features in the main reception with whitewashed rough sawn exterior plywood. A minimal marble look reception counter sits comfortably in the room while sheer drapery softens the space and offers a sense of safety and privacy. Comfortable and plush furnishings are complemented with rich pastel velvets and linens and the sense of luxury is enhanced with brass detailing.
