GP practice by Vasd architects


Dutch architects Vasd have completed the interior of a doctor's surgery in the Hague, the Netherlands.

The project involved constructing a new building with an extra storey inside the existing listed walls.

The practice accommodates six doctors and includes a waiting room on a mezzanine floor.

Here's some text from Vasd:


Vasd has completed a gp practice in the Hague, the Netherlands

This listed building in The Hague was transformed into a modern practice for six GPs.

To accommodate all of the facilities, a new building with an extra floor was built into the historic outer shell.

The new decor exudes serenity and a sense of space.

A mezzanine makes the waiting room light and airy, while the transparent reception desk opposite the front door provides a good overview.

Apart from the furniture, VASD also designed the house style, based on a red cross and two plasters.

A number of striking colour and design accents create a warm atmosphere featuring brightly coloured desks, couches and closets in the same red tint as the house style.

The wall boasts a selected piece of prose by Dutch writer Simon Vestdijk.

    Further evidence of the creeping Ikea-zation of the design world, which is not to say Ikea is not good. To the contrary. But it is to say that architects should quit doing Ikea knock-offs as their own.

  • The building outside view is gooooooooooooooooood~

    clean but a little too sterile. warm up the place a bit.

  • What?!

    @ John Hudson
    What do you consider an “Ikea knock-off” in the above images? I see clean simplistic lines, brightly lit and efficient use of space and a welcoming exterior, everything a good architect should supply for a client that runs a small surgical clinic. I don’t understand your comment.

  • warm atmosphere ?
