Nof Yam Public Health Clinic

Text by Lior Galili | The new Health Clinic building in Nof-Yam is a two-story public facility built for Clalit, the main national health services provider in Israel. Located between the sea and a major highway, the building functions as an anchor of both stability and solidarity. Nimrod Levi The organization of the ground floor establishes the stable and harmonious nature of the building. Half delineated by columns, half wrapped by concrete walls, the ground plan, which is comprised of parking and reception areas, presents its visitors with the core character of the construction: a dialectic of shadow and light; of lightness and solidity; and—in a more subtle manner—of fixed and fluid structures. This former dialectic is... More

FITNESS22

Our interior design for Fitness 22, a company that builds health and fitness apps, reflects the main values of this closed-knitted company, which is dedicated to advanced technology and wellness. To keep the space cozy and personal, while highlighting the work of the company, we combined home-like elements with wellness and sports motifs. The main kitchen has a “just like home” feeling; the lounges are comfortable and inviting; and sports-inspired graphic elements created by Studio Luka, including a climbing wall, decorate walls and offices. Graphics: Studio Luka Photography: Uzi Porat Installation: KPYM Israel  More

Qualident Clinic

Qualident is a dental clinic located in Istanbul’s European business district Kagithane. The clinic lodges in the recently constructed residential project Porta Vadi. This location grants the clinic a rather calm environment especially through an independent landscape zone.

Qualident’s two visible levels offer two different environments, leading to two distinct yet complementary experiences. The ground floor is dedicated to the waiting areas, the secretary, medico-technic rooms, a meeting room, a pair of lavatories and two of the eight clinic boxes.

Diyos Mens Health Clinic

Once a derelict residential dwelling in the chic suburbs of South Delhi, This structure was conceived to be the most fitting by the architects for a one-of-a-kind men fertility chain that was looking to make its debut with a flagship clinic. The building had clocked over 40 years, nearly touching the red mark of its lifetime, theoretically.  The physical condition, however, was evaluated and found to be apt for a quick turnaround.  The translation of its planning from a residential dwelling to that of a clinic foresaw major structural challenges due to the walls being load-bearing and the absence of any RCC member in the structure. This was augmented by strengthening and retrofitting with structural steel, injection grouting, etc.... More

Care Center. Будинок для людей похилого віку

The project envisaged the reconstruction of the Soviet two-story office building as a home for the elderly, with the completion of the third floor. The plot is surrounded by a manor house, which borders the field and the cascade of ponds, which became a key factor in choosing a place for this function. The core of the first floor is the large lobby, which penetrates the building through and unites the public courtyard with a private chamber courtyard in the depths of the site. On the first floor there are three quadruple rooms, on the second floor there are 10 double rooms and on the third floor there are 11 single rooms. On each of the floors there are zones for both joint rest and spending time, and with places where you can retire. The... More

Juice Brothers x Nutri Bowl

Nutri Bowl, specialised in cold-pressed juices, and Nutri Bowl, pioneer in healthy to-go meals, are joining forces in a new roll-out concept. Ninetynine was asked to develop a modular, scalable shop-in-shop concept which resulted in an inverted island bar which brings the customer – and not the staff – to the heart of the brand-controlled environment.   The design is based on a grid of 40x30x30 cm blocks. The size literally refers to the optimal 40/30/30 - protein/carbohydrates/fat - ratio provided by the power series of Nutri Bowl. The basic grid is projected onto the floor as a tiled surface, and is separated from the walls of the space. An L-shaped counter and a free-standing block that serves as a table are constructe...

Stress-relieving respite spaces have been carefully crafted to ensure relaxation aids recovery The hospital’s clever design can accommodate future expansion as the Gold Coast grows, with further stages of the building simply ‘plugged in’ to the existing structure. BIM was used from the outset on this project. Collaborating closely with the contractor and consultant team, models were regularly... More
