Mewscraft first met Harsh Shah from Eyewise Opticians at the Optrafair exhibition in Birmingham, 2016. Harsh had a vision for a new and improved Eyewise, modern and welcoming, with a space that was bright, contemporary and above all – functional. The Eyewise team felt that as the practice had grown hugely in terms of patient numbers over the years, the current spacial arrangements were no longer working for them. Harsh had identified that an extension to the building may be possible at the rear of the practice. This would mean that the entire space could be re-planned and re-fitted to equip them for the future.
Harsh ploughed everything into this project to improve the Eyewise experience, not only for his customers but also for his entire team. With no corners cut, he even raised the ceiling and the shopfront to maximise the amount of natural light in the practice – and it was definitely worth it!
Mewscraft worked alongside Harsh and his team to create a new scheme for the practice. With a new plasterboard ceiling, inset longitudinal LED lighting combined with recessed LED spotlighting, and subtle but sophisticated colours, a new mood was created. As Harsh already had contractors on site building the extension, Mewscraft were asked to create a drawings package for the electrics, lighting, ceiling, flooring, decoration etc. to be given to these contractors to fit.
A new bespoke reception desk and lockable record card storage were created and fitted by Mewscraft, as well as brand new displays, furniture and flooring. Our talented designers created beautiful feature walls for the front of the practice, including an eye catching graphic behind the reception area which incorporated LED display cubes and mirrors. Slightly unusually Eyewise decided to display a lower quantity of frames, but to do so in a more exclusive way. Harsh was keen that they should be attractive and eye-catching. A mix of Linear Stripe LED shelving, backlit LED panels and LED cubes can be seen showcasing frames in a stylish and modern way – a real eye-catcher!
Working with the team at Eyewise was a pleasure from start to finish. Harsh’s passion for his practice is clear to everyone and we are delighted with the final results!
