Dermatology Office in Rappjderm


Dermatology Office in Rappjderm

Due to the success of the two dematologists Dr. Susanne Kristof and DR. Christain Bulll, who founded the dermatology practice rappjderm in Rapperswil Jona, the existing practice became too small.

The development of new business areas and new competencies, such as aesthetic surgical procedures, also required an operating room and separate rooms that would allow more privacy for aesthetic patients.

In a nearby residential and commercial building, a 300 m2 shell space became available, which was intended for business premises. Susanne Fritz Architekten converted this into a high-quality and technically state-of-the-art practice with an operating room, laboratory, pharmacy and X-ray room. The building services were adapted to the requirements of the practice, including air conditioning and ventilation suitable for operating theaters.

The medical planning of the laboratory, the X-ray room and the operating room was competently accompanied by Susanne Fritz Architekten up to the official acceptance.

The larger area allowed the realization of double consulting rooms for three doctors. This minimizes the waiting time for the patients and allows the medical technical staff to do all the preparatory work so that the patients can be treated as soon as they enter the consulting room.

The rooms were arranged along a central access. The corridor leading to the treatment rooms was transformed into a gallery for the client, who had an affinity for art.

For the selection of the 'art on the building' Susanne Fritz Architekten chose large-format images of leaves and flowers that were exposed with a meter-sized camera obscura on special photographic paper. This shows the beauty of nature and its many forms of perception.

The lighting concept of the practice rooms creates the necessary luminance for the dermatological treatments, without appearing clinical. In the general areas, the ceiling is sculpturally modeled with sculptural ceiling lights.

A novel product celebrates its world premiere:

A wafer-thin layer of concrete on a manufactured wallpaper gives the interior walls an exposed concrete look. The consulting rooms are personalized for each of the doctors. The textile-looking wallpaper is antibacterial and solvent-resistant. Built-in furniture with wooden frames and brass wall sconces create warmth. The cooling as well as the lighting mood can be individually controlled for the room.
