Hong Kong, May 20th, 2024 – Atelier Pacific announces its latest project in Shanghai IFC for homegrown Shanghai medical beauty brand Dynámed. The 500 sq.m L-shaped space in the grade A office tower includes a reception, three consultation rooms, 11 treatment rooms, lounges, clinic, pharmacy, and back-of-house facilities. The design concept is based on Dynámed’s core values of timeless beauty captured through a moment as stilled grains of sand in an hourglass.

The pandemic has forced many to revalue what wellness and beauty means. Those aspiring towards slowing the ravages of time now have more options to reach their goals. For its most exclusive clientele, Dynámed looked to Atelier Pacific to create an appropriate space. Privacy of VIPs and celebrities, rather than a retail clinic, an upper floor in Shanghai IFC provides much prized discretion.

Atelier Pacific’s design solution references Shanghai’s landscape: wispy clouds glimpsed through large windows and earthy hues of sand along the Bund’s river banks. A captured moment of sand in an hourglass represents time preserved over eternity: a metaphor for Dynámed itself.

Organic materials including ceramic, travertine, limestone, terrazzo, and timber create a tranquil environment. Upon entry, a screen comprised of stacked terracotta-coloured ceramic tiles recalls the ripples of falling sand dunes. The cascade continues upon a terrazzo floor imbedded with red marble nuggets—a sprinkle of sand grains reaching urban Shanghai. Off to the right, the reception desk is a monolith of travertine while a waiting area is anchored by a billowy sofa underneath a contemporary blown glass chandelier.

Flanking the reception area with its generous ceiling heights are curving bulkheads that lead to the consultation and treatment rooms. The lower ceiling in these areas instils intimacy while the bulkhead shapes allude to passing clouds. The consultation rooms are fronted with textured glass, allowing sunlight to permeate while offering privacy. To demarcate each treatment room, blown glass globes highlight the entry signage.

Atelier Pacific imagined an ethereal space that envelopes Dynámed’s clients in a cocoon of well-being. The space sets the standard for the brand’s future endeavours.
