For the fitout for a 130 m2 Plastic Surgery, Corian® was the ideal solution.
January 29th, 2015
In the space, a white illuminated pod that contains all the administrative areas was the central architectural feature.
The clients needed the “pod” to be hardwearing and soft at the same time. It was to perform as the “face” of the fitout and therefore had to express an idea of high technology, gentle care and solid construction.
The concept for the project also rotated around the nature of plastic surgery, where beauty is calculated and perfect; the “pod” had to be perceived as a sculpture that was carved out to generate/house the functions inside it, it had to be perfect.
Corian® became the answer to all the questions. It is hardwearing and solid, and it could adapt to the soft/smooth rounded shapes needed for the design to relate to the practice of a plastic surgeon. The wall cladding had to seamlessly become seat, bench and ceiling, and face the technical challenge of a curved shape and the pod perceived as a unit.
With its versatile and hardwearing qualities, while at the same enabling a soft look, Corian was the perfect choice and the solution to this design. “We love it!” say the clients.

Inner city Melbourne has many beautiful locales and highly sought after suburbs in which people want to live, but few are so pretty as the beachside suburb of Elwood. An established suburb, Elwood has become a hub for those who appreciate parklands and the beach while still wanting to immerse themselves in the social interaction to be found at nearby cafes, restaurants and speciality shops. And the Elwood House is the perfect example of this suburb’s popularity.
