This historical building constructed in the 1950s was originally home to the first practicing gynecologist of Austin who provided services to at risk women. Over the decades it was used as a business office and received a second-story addition designed by QMET. We restored the structure to its original use as a medical office with sensitive architectural solutions, including delicately placed glass walls for privacy, additional articulated light for procedures, plumbing and custom millwork, and updated code compliant fixtures and finishes. Due to the nature of our client's practice, which specializes in facial feminization and transgender surgeries, we employed a balanced design that pays homage to the midcentury character of the building and celebrates the human body. A combination of soft and bold hues, mixed metals, and playful objects procured from vintage markets yield a rich palette that cultivates a secure and comfortable patient environment.
