Design showcase: Zen Healthcare seeks balance

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.


Initial designs were completed by Saint Clair Projects, with Black Circle Retail Designappointed to handle project management, design development, manufacture and installation of the interior.


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.
