Excerpts from the Article -- A luxurious, one-stop shop for modern health and beauty treatments, The Lu-Jean Feng Clinic in Pepper Pike specializes in microvascular plastic and reconstructive surgery and skin care. It currently offers body sculpting and contouring, liposuction, laser resurfacing, facial rejuvenation, reflexology treatments, hair transplants and permanent makeup.
This elegant, 15,127-square-foot Northeastern Ohio medical establishment was remodeled to evoke Feng’s poetic idealism in every detail. Last summer, Feng’s practice was flourishing. The clinic simply needed more room.
"We decided we wanted to grow our business," said Linda Haas, the clinic’s director of operations. "We were evolving from an outpatient surgery center to more of a total health and wellness center."
Less than a year ago, a tenant vacated. The timing was right. Business was booming. Two floors stood empty. It made sense for the clinic to take over the whole building. Acting on the opportunity to expand, Feng and the building’s owner put together a lineup of specialists to meet their goals, including Principal Architect William Ayars and Project Mike Lipowski of Perspectus Architecture.
The design process began in January 2005 with the construction drawings issued in August of that year, Lipowski says.
"The owner was involved in every design meeting and drove the layout and utilization of every space," he says. "The clients knew exactly what they wanted and how the suite layout would affect their practice."
"The materials and details were vitally important to the overall success of this project," Lipowski says. "Most clients cannot afford the extra costs for these improvements, but what a difference it makes.
The neutral materials in each room are of the highest quality available and set this suite apart from every other medical office project we have been involved with. The bulk of our work is healthcare, and we have completed dozens of medical office building tenant fit-outs, but nothing like this."
While additional work remains at The Lu-Jean Feng Clinic, including the addition of the first floor fitness and exercise center, Feng and her associates are extremely happy with the newly renovated space, Lipowski says. Quality relationships between team members were key in the project’s success, he adds.
