SNOQUALMIE VALLEY EYECARE
SNOQUALMIE RIDGE, WASHINGTON
To achieve the goal the designers chose to look ‘through’ the banal qualities of the retail center, as if it were transparent, to celebrate the identity of the eye clinic. The clinic is comprised of two main elements; a “box”, which houses all of the clinic’s secondary functions, and a large white “plane”, which separates the exam room and office from the retail space. Stenciled on the large white “plane” are super sized black Snellen eye chart letters. At night the translucent pieces of the “box” glow, and the light-washed eye chart radiates with such intensity that the exterior dissolves away.
