The embryocare prenatal clinic is situated in the hussling and bussling Vassilisis Sofias Avenue. The design aimed at creating a space that was distantly connected to the beautiful outside while feeling sheltered and calm. The glass lit wall creates a thick threshold between the calm interior space and the busy street life while it functions as a membrane that blurs the boundaries of the exterior shell, similarly to a womb.  The use of translucent shades and thick planting outside the windows further enunciates the introverted sensation of the space. The wooden planks on the glass wall introduce an intimate scale in the space that counterbalances its large dimension. Their vertical motif is repeated throughout the clinic and becomes a façade for the closets, while creating a sense of familiarity when moving through different spaces.
