The design of this facility faced the same issue that many businesses in Japan face – the lack of land. So the overall footprint had to pack more into less. In just 2,500 square feet, this hospital has four exam rooms and was designed to allow the owner to see between 75 and 150 clients a day.

Key design elements include open exam rooms that facilitate quick movement between the exam rooms and a core treatment room and doctors’ station to create a highly efficient, multi-purpose working center.
