Phoebe Says Wow has designed Leyi Counselling Clinic in Tainan City, Taiwan.

This project took a holistic approach to renovating from the inside out to give a 60-year-old flat a new mission – serving as a counselling clinic in which seminars and group sessions can be hosted to provide the community with a friendly base for those who seek mental health assistance.

"Our design aimed to do more than decorate the space but to communicate wordlessly with carefully chosen material and colour palettes along with the assorted planting as well as elaborated indoor natural light. We believe that space can bring impact on our emotional wellbeing, said designers, Phoebe Says Wow Architects. "To respond to our client’s requirement for a bright, open, and warm environment, we curated the space to bring in as much quality natural light and greens as possible in a meticulous fashion featuring a clear shelving system throughout the long axis."

In addition, custom breeze blocks formed the new double-layer facade as a solution to privacy, street noise and interior climate which gives the clinic a memorable identity.

This project has been longlisted in the leisure and wellness interiors category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
