  • area / size 2,207 sqft
  • Completed 2022
  • Location Barcelona, Spain,
  • Type Clinic,
  • Vitale designed the Toral Clinic as a welcoming and thoughtful space in Barcelona, Spain.

    The objective of the interior design project developed by Vitale is to show a highly differentiated independent clinic in a sector in which ostentatious or extremely aseptic spaces are generally recreated. The aim is for the clinic to be perceived as a wellness center with an image focused on personal care, exclusivity and a lifestyle that promotes physical and emotional well-being. In an area of 205 m2, the premises consist of a lobby, reception, product display area with a coffee corner, 2 waiting areas, 5 service boxes, medical office, 2 bathrooms and a room for staff.

    The project poses the challenge of converting a recently renovated space for use as offices into a medical space with other functionality. And carry out this transformation respecting some elements such as the flooring or the wooden slats, with a very contained cost of the reform and a reduced execution time. The interior design project of the clinic must be adapted at a functional level as far as possible to the existing distribution by means of plasterboard partitions and with reversible low-impact solutions, such as double-sided glass cabinets to hide existing interior windows or through the use of thick velvet curtains to cover the windows that overlook the interior patios of the building.

    Under these starting premises, Vitale takes inspiration from the thermal spas of the early 20th century as benchmarks for medical and therapeutic innovation towards a profound social transformation in terms of new habits and lifestyles related to well-being. Through an updated look regarding materials and furniture, a solemn and elegant space is generated where fabrics, natural fiber, curvilinear furniture and indirect lighting take center stage. The textile padding and the wicker grid are details that give that look to the past that gives the space a natural and honest spirit, linking perfectly with the strong personality of the geometric patterns of the existing pavement. The result is a clinic that transmits exclusivity and well-being in an environment conceived from calm and sensitivity.
