Dr. Austin Cohen, D.C., a repeat client, contacted CrossFields when he learned that his landlord was planning to demo his existing building to make way for a new apartment development. He had been leasing for a few years and had built-up a strong patient base and was committed to the area. Not wanting to be up rooted again in the future, Dr. Cohen began looking for business type spaces he could purchase. As a result, he found an undeveloped business condo space less than two blocks away. The space was completely unfinished and the time clock was ticking for him to get out of his old space. He wanted a natural spa type environment that was first class and would appeal to the more affluent patient.
CrossFields first step was to determine how much space was needed. Since the client would be purchasing the space, it was even more critical to make sure everything he might want in the future was thoroughly considered upfront. Since this new space was totally unfinished, and the adjacent tenants were not defined yet, we were able to create the exact layout configuration that allowed the best function, flow, and adjacencies the Client wanted. Once this information was determined, it was used to finalize the purchase terms and the SBA loan.
First point of impact, since the space was located immediately opposite the elevators, a modern solid glass wall and door were used to create openness and a WOW visibility to others that frequent the building.
Desiring the natural light from the exterior windows to flow through the space, CrossFields created a large open space with track accent lighting divided only by and dramatic partial height accent wall to divide the inviting waiting, retail and front desk area from the inviting pre-adjusting hospitality and adjusting area, all accented with modern track lighting.
To vary the atmosphere with the functions of the space, a lower ceiling and soft finishes and reduced light level created a serene massage, therapy exam and Report of Findings area.
To further create the desired spa environment, CrossFields used a neutral color scheme with natural stones and lighter wood finishes, to create a very clean and natural feeling atmosphere. The space was topped off with key art, accessories, accent lighting and seating, giving it an impressive and inviting appeal.
