Zen Healthcare in London’s Knightsbridge describes itself as “A Fusion of Pharmacy, Beauty and Wellness Centre at the exquisite Beauchamp Place.”
The centre hosts a team of doctors, pharmacists, nutritionists, a dermatologist and a selection of therapists. It also functions as a pharmacy, meaning long opening hours (from 9am-11pm seven days a week) and high footfall.
The 100 sq m site occupied by the company was previously a café. Zen Healthcare’s brief called for a high end interior accommodating a dispensary, a retail area and two consultation/treatment rooms. The client specified a contemporary interior and white joinery throughout the space.
To achieve the required finish the agency used sprayed joinery, with a combination of white gloss, grey tinted glass shelves and LED panels providing a backdrop for the retail area.
A bespoke window display provides a striking visual element. ‘Floating’ solid oak shelves are suspended from wire cables.
The dispensary area uses a continental drawer system imported from Italy, a service counter and worktop areas for preparing prescriptions. The consultation and treatment areas are in the basement.
The project was completed in six weeks from brief to completion.
