DIA: Nuclear Medicine Clinic

Design: Ana Luisa Rolim

We focused on personalized healthcare in our design for this nuclear medicine clinic, located within an existing medical center. Our aim was to create a serene environment conducive to the specialized procedures of scintigraphy and radioisotope therapy, known for their time-intensive nature.


Emphasizing comfort and relaxation, we chose earthy tones for the finishes, complemented by striking furniture pieces. A parametric pattern, inspired by the client’s visual identity, adorns a door and panel separating the waiting areas from the corridor leading to restrooms and staff areas.


Within the clinic, large wood panels with frosted glass provide flexibility, dividing the reception area from the exam room and controlled-access corridor. This corridor leads to specialized rooms, including the gamma camera space, secured with double lead doors for safety and privacy.
