The Medicus Center building located at Strzelecki Square in Wroclaw, Poland combines medical and office facilities. The four-story building (almost 7,000 m²) is a modern healthcare center with a laryngology clinic and a clinic of aesthetic medicine and plastic surgery. Standard floors have been replaced by works of art designed by Jeanet Hönig, who created beautiful patterns, referring to the structure and function of the building, and provided the rooms a unique character.

Each room required a proper floor, that would to meet functional requirements and, ensuring also good interior aesthetics, especially in commercial buildings, where large floor areas are often the most prominent and decorative element of the space.
