Paper Cut Parlor in Stockholm by Visiondivision

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

Article source: Visiondivision

Visiondivision has made a waiting room for a private clinic in Stockholm that specializes in athletic injuries. The clinic has two functions; it consists of a rehab gym and an arthroscopic centre. The clinic is occupying a storey in a larger hospital with a staircase and elevator unit that goes through all the floors in the building. We wanted to separate the clinic from the rest of the rather bland hospital environment when creating the new waiting room, and make a clearly defined space that is fresh and diverse while still being comfortable and relaxed to hang around and work in.

Waiting room for a private clinic

  • Architecture firm: Visiondivision (Anders Berensson & Ulf Mejergren)
  • Management and service consultant: Wild Windows (Wille Winell)
  • Expected completion date: late summer 2011.
  • Location: Stockholm
