Time stands still when you step into Vancouver’s AE.R Skinlab — a particularly good thing upon entering a cosmetic dermatology clinic. With a palette of tranquil greys and a lobby installation that resembles millennia-old stalactites, the space is undeniably soothing. It was inspired in part by its location in Arthur Erickson’s Waterfall Building, which has its own calming effect. “When you walk from the street to the courtyard, you pass by a poetic waterfall installation,” says principal architect Michael Leckie, whose team at Leckie Studio developed AE.R’s interiors around notions of materiality, erosion and weathering.
