Projects around the globe not only look good, but also make visitors feel good.
Firm: Bean Buro
Project: Beautysaur Organics, Hong Kong
Standout: Although its logo is Mesozoic, the budding skincare company’s clientele is definitively millennial, so the store’s aesthetic is tinted slightly Memphis, with rounded profiles, terrazzo surfaces, and saturated pastels.
Firm: Ubalt Architectes
Project: Adidas x INSEP, Paris
Standout: Teamwork wins at the Institut
National du Sport et de l’Éducation Physique, where a recent renovation whipped the student lounge into shape, its custom tiled tables atop vinyl flooring streaked with the iconic Adidas Triple Stripe.
Firm: Integrated Field Co.
Project: EKH Children’s Hospital, Samut Sakhon, Thailand
Standout: The lobby’s twisting fiberglass slide supports the brief’s theme of
playing is healing, as does the facility’s 850-square-foot, “cloud”-surrounded pool, also available for older patients to use for hydrotherapy.
Firm: Rockwell Group
Project: ORA, New York
Standout: Combining ancient Chinese medicine and tea culture with contemporary design, the acupuncture and cupping clinic’s reception centers on a marble check-in counter, where patients are served herbal beverages under an installation of dip-dyed cotton rope.
