Horst Architects took on the challenge of creating a medical boutique, retail and educational facility for ZO Skin Overall health in Laguna Seashore, California. The new venture entitled Obagi Skin Overall health Institute was founded by Dr. Zein Obagi, a licensed training dermatologist in Beverly Hills and an author of far more than 200 skin wellness lectures presented all through the planet. He aimed for a modern building, embedding modern science and technology breakthroughs, with a substantial level of versatility.
Sustainability and timelessness have been the main attributes the architects aimed for: principal walls of silver travertine organize the interior and exterior spaces although also reflecting the subtle, corporeal contours of the skin. Natural light enters the interior spaces through steady fissures in which these walls meet the ceiling planes. The constant dance of light and shadow on the stone walls produce what Le Corbusier when described as the appropriate and magnificent, of kinds assembled in the light”.
