The Chronicles of Alliance Wellness' fabulous new office - Finale

Dr Viv and the staff of Alliance Wellness moved into the new office in late July.  Not everything was totally finished, but it was complete enough for them to able to provide the stellar patient care they are known for!

It's almost hard to believe that what is now this:

.....was once this:

The floors are cork in a bamboo pattern, the gem-like, custom counter top was fabricated by local company, Novustone, from concrete and recycled glass.

There are light-filtering panels atop the interior walls, featuring grasses pressed between layers of resin,  made by Lumicor, a local company.

Abundant storage for patient records was provided by local company, Organized Spaces.

But what really sets this medical office apart and infuses it with a spa-like, almost zen aura, lives in the details:

.... billowing, sheer, azure drapery panels and Roman Shade, which can be glimpsed in the photo, above, and at the top.....

......porcelain wall sconces in massage/acupuncture treatment rooms.....

......rectangular mirror-framed mirror and square sink in the bathroom....

 ......grass weave shades in the front offices..... 

.....bright, interesting fabric on the lumbar-supporting pillows....

....gorgeous designer wallpaper throughout.

It's a beautiful, warm, welcoming space that just begs to be lingered in, whether one is injured or just in need of a pampering massage!

It's the next-to-last posting before the completion of

Alliance Chiropractic'

s new office at the

Ruby

condos on Eastlake!  The move will begin soon - was there ever such an aesthetically-pleasing chiropractic office? It's been an amazing and wonderful pleasure to be involved with this project from the beginning.  What a great and collaborative team:  the supremely appreciative, understanding, calm, wise client; visionary architect/project manager; super construction team.... I have been blessed to be a part of this and am so thankful!

Here's the latest photo of the Reception area..... the fabulous lighting fixtures and window treatments will be installed very soon.....

The view from Dr Viv's office, below........

Stay tuned for final photos soon - with furniture, lighting, and window treatments!  It just gets better and better.....

The Chronicles of Alliance Wellness' fabulous new office - Weeks 9 & 10

It's starting to resemble a bee hive at Alliance Wellness' new office at the Ruby condominiums on Eastlake!  Along with a new office, there's a new logo:

The cork flooring and carpet squares were installed last week....
 ....and the walls that haven't been wallpapered were primed..... and then painted.  The reception area is coming along nicely!  I'll be posting more frequently now that the changes are so dramatic ....

The Chronicles of Alliance Wellness' fabulous new office - Weeks 6 & 7

Alliance Wellness' new office at the Ruby condominiums on Eastlake is proceeding on schedule!
All the walls are constructed and in the process of a "level 4 mudding", as the contractor tells me.  (That means very, very smooth, perfect for wallpaper. And we will have wallpaper!)  Above is the latest view of what will, eventually, be the new reception desk location.  I know it still doesn't look that fabulous, but it will in a very short time.

Imagine the finishes:  walnut veneer, Novustone counter top (a blend of concrete and recycled glass), cork floors, Lumicor panels (plexiglass embedded with natural elements), dreamy sea-blue sheers....and lots of wallpaper.  The palette was partially inspired by this fabric from Highland Court.


This will be a warm and welcoming office.  The interior will be a reflection of the natural world just outside the doors, capturing the essence of soothing water, glorious sunsets, and vibrant city life.  The location is incredible:  on Eastlake Avenue East, tucked between the UW and downtown Seattle.  The views of Lake Union, Gasworks Park, and Queen Anne are stunning.....and the staff is amazing!  What could be better?

.....while I'm thinking about window treatments....and dreaming of dust-free days....

So, everything was going so smoothly - until the walls were opened up, that is..... and it was revealed that the floor was two different heights!  Slight delay while more concrete was poured....

Concrete dried, framing went in..... See the future front reception desk, above.....

....and Dr Viv's new office......

Someday soon, there will be an
