Magwise is an innovative unit specializing in modern psychotherapy and brain neurostimulation. Its owner, who previously ran a private psychiatric practice, decided to expand their business and create a space with a diagnostic laboratory and psychotherapy offices. Due to its location in a renovated, modernist building from the 1930s, the design subtly references the style of that era. The investor also emphasized the use of high-quality materials to create an atmosphere of trust and prestige.
A significant challenge was the elongated shape of the premises, which necessitated a specific functional layout. Just beyond the glass entrance doors, there is a spacious reception area that seamlessly transitions into a wide corridor with entrances to the therapy rooms. At the end of the hallway, the laboratories and diagnostics are located.
We laid distinctive black-and-white checkered tiles on the floor, characteristic of Polish modernism, while white longitudinal tiles were placed on the pillars and in the corridor, forming a characteristic vertical pattern. The reception counter and shelves feature a minimalist design with rounded corners, also paying homage to modernism. Wooden panels were placed on the walls of the reception area to create a warmer and less sterile ambiance.
Each therapy room was decorated in a slightly different way but following a consistent theme. Our goal was to achieve a friendly and intimate atmosphere that ensures comfort for the patients. Therefore, the rooms are furnished with soft, comfortable armchairs and furniture from the 1960s and 1970s
