Design of an exclusive health center within Vienna’s City Center. By combining a medical and therapeutic area with a shop and lounge a compact structure has been created calling forth new references between the material, light and colour . Spatial depth is achieved by the contrast between rough natural stone and smooth golden walls, surfaces made of oiled wood, soft textile surfaces and the latest medical technology. A double high shop and entrance zone with large windows making the golden shimmer inside visible is the interface to the public.
