What Difference Design

by Mike Hunter

Arizona Integrative Medicine & Spa was a full tenant improvement from a shell space for its tenant, Jyoti Patel, M.D. The 3,100-square-foot office at 11648 E. Shea Blvd. in Scottsdale includes exam rooms, a classroom, teaching kitchen, IV therapy room and medspa. There is a sliding door from the lobby into the classroom. It can extend the room for learning events as well as yoga or wellness classes. “The spaces,” Dr. Patel notes, “are cultivated for small visits and customized care.”

“The space exudes wellness,” says Beth Katz of KatzDesignGroup, whose team collaborated to provide full scope interior design. “Every design element was selected to feel healthy, natural and relaxing.” The project team included Michael Hall, architect of record; and Kaiser Construction, general contractor.

“Traditional medical practice space can look very sterile,” Dr. Patel says. “Patients come in frightened, sick; it can be very impersonal. The vision I had for Beth was to make the space inviting and calm. We accomplished this with the soft lighting, simple tones; elements that are very inviting and make it look more personal.”
