In a direct analog to the plastic surgery practice he founded, John Ness engaged ESG to perform a face lift and reconstruction on an aging Wayzata landmark. By stripping the structure back to its bones, the design team was able to graft on a new, revitalized identity to support the Omni cosmetic brand. Part destination retail, part spa, part healthcare facility, the clinic was developed to be an oasis of care for the many long term clients already connected to the brand, while creating a calming and inviting environment for new customers. The project utilizes a simple, natural palette of materials, including natural hardwoods and stucco plaster on the exterior to evoke a residential scale and quality, while the interior environments seamlessly blend hospitality treatments with durable healthcare finishes.
