Q Dermatology by Outline Design Office
▲ In its fitout for a dermatology clinic in Brisbane, interior design studio Outline Design Office has delivered a welcoming space more akin to a wellness studio than a medical facility. Clinical without feeling cold, the design prioritizes patient comfort and offers an appealing alternative to the standardized and stale medical waiting room. Clever spatial planning allows patients and staff to share access to views and natural light, while plants and natural materials have been used where possible to add softness. Unexpected details, from the embossed “Q” on the waiting room seating to the scalloped detail that reappears on walls and joinery, elevate the patient experience and help to change expectations of specialist medical care.
