The Institute of Dermatology® is a state-of-the-art, world-class facility for Medical and Cosmetic Dermatology.
Jenny Butler, Interior Architect with Henry J Lyons, led the design of this two-floor Dermatology medical centre. She has created a very clean, clinical but comfortable environment with simple yet effective design details. The space will provide the ultimate Medical and Cosmetic Dermatological experience for our patients.
The lighting design was an extremely important feature to ensure the space felt warm, inviting and luxurious despite the implementation of cool tones throughout. Warm fabrics were used through the solid pieces to soften the overall look and feel.
Finally the hexagonal theme of our logo and brand is reiterated through the tile design and branding throughout the building.
Our Reception Area
The curved spatial elements of the reception area, waiting area and walls reflect the natural ogee curves of facial beauty making the space feel organic and effortless.
This can be seen upon entry to the space, particularly through the design of the ceilings and the waiting area.
Logo & Identity
Our logo was developed by our innovative Brand Designer, Deirdre Barbera of Deirdre Barbera Design. The hexagonal outline represents the simplest molecular symbol and the traditional depiction of a skin cell over time.
The shape is reflected throughout the interiors of the Institute such as the tile design and branding. This continuous annular structure signifies trust, loyalty and safety in the brand and throughout the company. It implies an idea of movement looking to the future of being best in class. The simple and mathematical Phi ratio of beauty ties beautifully into the cosmetic work of the highly trained team of Consultant Dermatologist and Plastic Surgeons at the Institute of Dermatology.
The letters ID not only represent the Institute's name, the Institute of Dermatologists®, but also reflect our concept of an individual's "Skin ID" or identity. We advocate individualisation of skin care for medical dermatological treatment plans, for optimal skin care regimens and when choosing cosmetic dermatological procedures.
