Michiru Cohen from Michiru Design Studio was engaged by Infinity Health to design the interiors of their new medical centre in Green Square, Sydney.
Infinity Health’s medical centre services the Green Square community as well as the inner-Sydney suburbs of Zetland, Kensington, Surry Hills and Waterloo. Their preventative health focus ensures the best outcomes for their valued clients and their families – an approach that extends to the working environments they provide for their doctors and support staff.
The designer turned to Altro Flooring and Walling for a flooring solution that would meet the high standards of her client in terms of design, cleanliness and quality.
“After speaking with Infinity Health, it was clear the vision they had moving forward. The priority was to make their healthcare centre welcoming to all ages and abilities. Having a family-friendly environment in a growing community that was also hygienic, comfortable and easy to clean was very important.”
Cohen chose Altro Orchestra acoustic vinyl flooring for the corridors, waiting rooms, doctors’ offices, WCs and reception. The flooring in 10 outstanding, bright colours ensured a warm, vibrant space.
The Infinity Health practice manager agrees:
“Being the very first medical centre for Infinity Health, it was important to deliver a concept that reflected what we stand for as a company, and what we wanted to provide the community. We have a truly unique space which we are very proud of. The support from Altro before, during and after installation has been great.”
Altro Orchestra 2.85mm acoustic vinyl flooring has been engineered for use in areas where comfort and sound reduction are important. The acoustic flooring has low residual indentation, facilitating the flexible use of equipment and furniture, including hospital beds. At the same time, the integrated impact sound insulation system cuts impact sound by up to 15dB.
Additionally, underfoot comfort makes life easier for all users, but particularly the hard-working staff who are constantly on their feet and on the move.
Altro Orchestra acoustic vinyl flooring finds application in school, kindergarten and university corridors and classrooms, student accommodation, hospital and care home corridors, patient/ resident rooms, retail and home adaptations/ social housing among many more.
“As a designer, it’s important to make sure material that is put forward to the client is high quality, easy to maintain and will look great over time – especially a flooring product where it’s getting high traffic day in and day out. Altro Orchestra provided this, plus the design flexibility to achieve the modern yet family-friendly vision of the fitout,” observed Cohen.
Infinity Health Medical Centre Green Square: “More than just beautiful flooring throughout our facilities! We used a variety of colours and it was one of the best decisions we made. A masterpiece to look at and we receive many praises from our patients. Big thank you to Altro!”
