A New Wave Anthem Inspires a Wellness Center in Ukraine
A 15th-century house in northwestern Ukraine’s Volyn Oblast needed a serious reconstruction. A successful businesswoman (and mother of five) needed a home for the newest location of a chain of medical centers. And Buro Odinstova founder Elizaveta Odintsova needed a way to pay tribute to a beloved song.
The result is Forever Young. “We were inspired by the vibe of the famous song by the German synthpop band Alphaville,” says Odintsova. The center, which specializes in holistic beauty and health treatments, spans a 2,150-square-foot space. Its palette of pink and pistachio offers an updated ‘80s aesthetic, amplified by arched doorways, brass accessories, and terrazzo.
“The technical design plan,” meanwhile, she says, had “to withstand all necessary medical standards of ventilation, insolation, high-strength coatings, and environmental friendliness of materials.” The considerations pushed the team to the limit, but you wouldn’t know it from the final result, which is as timeless as the hit song that inspired it. “The atmosphere is light, airy, and enveloping with its warmth and particular mood,” she says, noting that the design reflects the center’s mission—helping visitors restore their youthful glow and energy.
