Interior: The project team for this job was comprised of the client, along with local architect, Bohdan Dorniak, who specializes in straw bail walls, and Enoki, for interior design, corporate identity package and interior graphics. Calling for a strong environmental focus, spotted gum was used for the floors which wrap up the front counter, recycled plywood for the ceiling lining, and birch Eco ply for doors and joinery. Existing red brick walls were exposed, for their raw beauty, in the reception area and Pilates room, and are juxtaposed with falling leaf wall sculptures of stainless steel. With their dense thermal mass, straw bail walls form the hallway and consult rooms, providing efficient heating and cooling qualities, as well as privacy due to their low noise transfer quotient. All joinery is built in and provides optimum storage and functionality. Building designed by Bohdan Dorniak.
Graphic: The Therapia Tree symbolises firm foundations, balance and an ability to be flexible to reach out and be active. The idea behind the logo is that of the Tree-of-Life. Therapia - a healing centre that promotes 'getting the most out of life'. The idea grew in strength by the memory of lying beneath a tree and gazing up at the foliage above in a state of relaxation. By working with Therapia a client can experience all of these physical benefits. A series of photographic and illustrative elements carry through forming a strong identity.
