Shiraz and Sharon approached Mewscraft to help renovate their existing practice in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales.
Although in good order structurally, the practice interior was in need of a refresh. Sharon had a clear vision of what she wanted for the space; she wanted comfortable functionality, a modern and clean look without being too clinical. Working closely with our designer John, together they put in place a scheme to bring that vision to life.
Mewscraft completed new flooring throughout the reception, retail space, stairway and first floor hallway. Consisting of a mix of soft carpet and a heavily textured wood vinyl.
New matte white furniture included integrated drawer storage with bespoke spectacle trays, a reception desk, manager’s desk, 2 x dispensing desks, and reception storage. As well as partition walling for record card storage at the front of the practice and a freestanding glass display cabinet. Wall displays consisted of polar white acrylic panels with Mini Tubix locking rods, and polar white acrylic pin panels with bespoke graphics for the top.
The colour scheme was developed based on the clients existing brand colours and applied to the retail area. Shades of blue add a splash of soft colour to the space.
The main challenge of this project came in the fitting. Taking on the role of Project Manager on site, Sharon was keen for the work to be completed over weekends to avoid too much closure of the practice. The works carried out by Mewscraft were split over two weekends in August. The first weekend saw the flooring being laid, the client then decorated over the second and Mewscraft fitted all furniture and displays in the three days following this. It was a tight but achievable deadline, and resulted in the total practice closure time being just two days!
The refreshed practice is the perfect reflection of Sharon’s vision. Clean and modern with touches of colour and texture, the practice has been transformed. Congratulations to Sharon, Shiraz and the whole team at The Optical Centre.
