We recently had the privilege of working with Harbor Life Chiropractic in Gig Harbor, Washington. They were tackling a new build-out and expanding to over three times their original size – from 1000 sq. ft. to over 3000 sq. ft. It was really important to us and to Harbor Life that our design captured the essence of their vibe: from Dr. Bo and Dr. Jamie’s friendly, knowledgeable and relaxed manner to their pristine setting nested between the Cascade Mountains and Puget Sound.
Being a part of both a mountain and harbor community, we knew that pulling colors, textures and elements from Harbor Life’s natural surroundings into the design was a must. We incorporated blue and grey sky, water and mountain color tones into the carpet and throughout the finishes. To reflect the dense forests of the region, we integrated warm wood elements on feature walls and luxury vinyl tile (LVT) flooring. We reinforced Harbor Life’s brand by taking their new logo, giving it a “state park sign” look and displaying it prominently above their reception desk.
One of our biggest aims was to create an environment where patients feel welcome, can easily relax and focus on their wellness. The seaside vibe combined with classic architectural elements and a bright, optimistic interior space is the perfect mix. The fresh and relaxing interior helps offset the abundance of grey days and the simple, elegant, nature focus is inviting and puts patients at ease.
We demoed existing cubicles, creating an open-concept adjusting area and integrated design elements that help facilitate a logical flow throughout the space. Playing on the natural surroundings, we chose a chandelier that resembles a crab cage, nautical-looking wall sconces and mountain-inspired, reception pendant lighting.
Ultimately, our design concept for Harbor Life Chiropractic reflects their brand: wellness-oriented, optimistic, familiar, casual and nature inspired! We are very proud of how everything came together, even exceeding our client’s expectations.
