Cranberry Township, PA
Located in Cranberry, PA, Pittsburgh Skin is a private dermatology practice founded by dermatologist and Mohs surgeon, Dr. Nicole F. Vélez.
At 3,000 SF, the office offers plenty of room for the current practice as well as plans for future growth. The large space allows for a generously-sized nurses’ station, six exam and surgical rooms, a histotech laboratory, a staff kitchen, and a doctor’s office. A patient bathroom was also added within the space for privacy and convenience.
The design draws on elements that complement the often aesthetic-focused dermatology field. Throughout, the office’s design is fresh and contemporary, making it stand out from other medical settings. Patients enter through a bright and inviting reception area, featuring quartz countertops, a wallpapered accent wall, and mid-century modern-inspired furniture. Clean white walls with bold blue accents create an environment that is uplifting, while remaining professional. LVT flooring was chosen over carpeting for its richness and ease of cleaning. Brass accents throughout further elevate the space. Strategic placement of these decorative elements enabled AE7 to achieve design goals while remaining within budgetary constraints.
AE7 led site selection efforts for the practice and created test layouts for the shortlisted options. Our team then created a design that refreshes the traditional medical office aesthetic. AE7 also developed the initial branding concept for the practice, and assisted with furniture selection and wayfinding
