Northwestern Medicine Dermatology Geneva
Adaptive reuse project transforms bank in century-old facility into dermatology clinic with advanced technologies and spa-like atmosphere
A 6,000-square-foot retrofit converts a former grocery store (built circa 1900), bank, and start-up into a high-tech dermatology space. The design follows Northwestern Medicine’s finish and materials standards, but also considers the facility’s location near a Starbucks and just half a block north of Geneva’s main shopping thoroughfare. A subdued jewel-toned color scheme and distinctive material palette create a less clinical, more spa-like setting with a retail ambiance that complements the downtown setting.
