The Burrell Street Clinic in Southwark, England doesn’t look anything like your typical sexual health clinic.

Designed by London studio Urban Salon, the clinic includes a waiting area that looks and feels like a cafe with WiFi and free coffee, a layout that aims to make patients feel relaxed and safe, and modern art work and graphics by Arnold Goron, Allison Dring, and Martin McGrath.

The modern and funky design of the clinic was a result of a design competition held by England’s National Health Service.  NHS invited architects and designers from outside the healthcare specialization to design a clinic that doesn’t look like a standard hospital environment to help break down taboos around sex education and health care.

The clinic has a glazed glass facade that bathes the reception and waiting room area in natural light and still provide a sense of privacy for the patients. There are consultation areas at the front and private examination rooms at the back. Art work such as murals on the walls, ceiling art, and graphic signage are all around to create a relaxing and friendly atmosphere.
