Today cosmetic surgery is considered more than just a cure for beauty and desire. It is transformed into an aesthetical procedure sculpting a piece of art onto a human body. Consequently, at WONJIN clinic, the design team targets the impression of a studio and surgery gallery.

As a part of WONJIN Medical Group [Thailand], WONJIN Aesthetic Surgery Gallery Clinic is composed of Thai investors and a world-leading surgery from Korea. WONJIN strength and uniqueness is the articulation in the process of the surgical procedure with specialization in cosmetic surgery measuring and detailing up to a millimeter.

WONJIN is designed to differ from other cosmetic institutions with functional space articulation as “a Studio and Gallery for the Beauty Surgery” to communicate the human body with potential cosmetic surgery procedures. Famous Thai contemporary sculpture artists and photographer artists worked in close collaboration with doctors and designers to tell a story of beauty evidence through cosmetic surgery, titled: “Art, Beauty & Surgery”.

WONJIN医美诊所的空间设计契合了美容研究的“对称平衡”这一概念。在1990年代初，《Newsweek》杂志便发表过以丹泽尔·华盛顿（Denzel Washington）为首个案例进行对称美研究的内容。此外，根据文章《The Biology of Beauty》所述，研究表明当人的面孔完全对称时便可达到一种“完美”的境界，这样的面孔也极富吸引力。诊所空间的设计也以此为概念，建筑布局，徽标、符号、字体等细节以及现场展出的艺术品都体现出对称性。此外，WONJIN医美诊所的独特之处还在于对健康与安全的关注。项目建设严格遵循不同的工程系统标准。密实的层压板、乙烯基地板和地毯等材料应用在地板、墙壁与天花板上，都遵循了健康环保的要求。室内环境质量取得了《4.3 Low-Emitting Materials-Floor systems》和《Flame-retardant D Fire Defense Law》两项日本法规的达标认证。
The design of the WONJIN environment is carefully innovated from the concept of ‘Symmetrical Balance’ from beauty research. In the early 1990s, Newsweek used Denzel Washington as their primary example of perfection for beauty according to symmetry. According to the article ‘The Biology of Beauty’ New Link. A research study describes ‘the Perfect Beauty’ can be seen in our face configuration if dividing it in half and two sides are identical. Symmetry is one’s face is what makes one attractive. This symmetrical framework led to the layout design, space identity (i.e. logo, symbols, fonts), as well as curated artworks on site. Additionally, what makes WONJIN different from general clinics and hospitals is the priority concern with the health and safety standards which clearly define by each area with engineering systems. Materials used from the floor, wall to ceiling, including compact laminate, conductive vinyl floor, and carpet comply with the health environmental control. The indoor environmental quality is credited with 4.3 Low-Emitting Materials-Floor systems and Flame-retardant D Fire Defense Law in Japan Authorized.
