Aqua Health Clinic in Beijing

AQUA HEALTH CLINIC IN BEIJING

Aqua Health Clinic combines a wellness centre and a traditional Chinese medicine clinic. For the design team at Waterfrom Design the task was to create today’s update of the smelly and dark ancient medicine environment and bring it to a new, brighter and cleaner era.

The traditions and visual cues of the ancient medicine are not hidden. Instead they are displayed in artistic and museum-like ways through a concept the designers call Exhibition of Frozen Time. For example, there is a massive glass-encased wall installation that displays almost 100 different Chinese medicine plant and mineral specimens. Touches of Chinese writing, symbols of nature and earthy materials are juxtaposed with harder, modern components.
