Zenvisión is a clear commitment to uniformity that uses a single material generating a warm, pleasant, quiet and bright space. We chose grooved medium density boards commonly used to make curved walls but taking advantage, in this case, of its less noble side.
With this material both the furniture that the optician had once been covered as well as new ones that have solved the functional deficit that they had, have also been located in the vertical walls hiding the access doors to the cabinets and the warehouse. This solution solves, economically, both the use and the new image of the premises.
The result is a sober and elegant character socket. A basement that serves the optics on a white background that enhances the brightness of the room.
Finally, the cabinet was divided in two, thus doubling the availability of spaces, this division allows combining optometry consultations with those dedicated to visual therapy.
On the facade the wood has been repaired in poor condition and painted to prevent further degradation. Last but not least, the showcase design solution has been simplified by giving the product a total prominence.
This project has been awarded by the Official College of Architects of Galicia (COAG) with the Grand Prize of the Area of Contribution to Architecture 2019 for the firm commitment in the use of a unique material that allows the resolution of many of the elements that would require the program, and to perfectly demonstrate the importance and weight of the project strategy in the final success of a job, beyond the budgetary conditions.
