The Beach
A place where a tropical beach meets an atlantic urban forest.

CONCEPT

The beach wants to create a feeling of vacation for the health workers of the ER department of Harborview Medical Center. The space wants the users to have a sensory experience when at the beach, enhancing the connection between the human's s five senses with the four natural elements.

At the beach, we see nature, hear the wind and waves, feel the heat, taste the saltiness, and touch the sand. The openness and big windows represent the air; the wood represents the earth; the sunny, beachy aesthetic represents the fire; and the greens and blues represent the water.

The project was inspired by Rio de Janeiro - a vibrant metropolis home to 7 million people. The city is famous for its curvy geography, where the beaches meet the largest urban forest in the world.

FLOOR PLAN

The curved wooden wall panels are 1 inch wide-spaced between themselves to create the “Cobogo” feeling. The resting area has reclining chairs and a hanging chair that gives the room the forest vibe. The floors have an ombre effect to give the users the feeling of walking on the white sands, wet sands, and then the sea.
