Serge Schoemaker Architects converted a small medical practice in Ede, the Netherlands. The design requirements were met in a spatially efficient way by introducing a storey high, almost seven metres long furniture wall unit. The new interior offers space, light and privacy.

The monolithic wall unit is custom made from birch plywood and encompasses seating facilities, archive storage space, drawers for medical equipment and a kitchenette. It has three large openings which slant towards the outside facade and give the interior its sculptural character.

The two largest openings are situated in front of the existing windows, allowing light to pour in from behind the new seating at different angles. The integrated translucent window blinds filter the sunlight and allow the flexibility of privacy within the practice if required.

In order to let the practice appear as bright and clean as possible, the walls were painted white and the floor redecorated with a durable lime grey coloured floor coating. The new free standing tables and drawer units were also made from birch wood creating a homogenous and serene atmosphere.
