Our fundamental aim was to rethink the typical, clinical corridor typology of dental practices to redefine how patients view a visit to the dentist - transforming it from a somewhat daunting experience to a pleasant one.
The layout is based on a “poché” plan with an enfilade of bright rooms to create a calm and soothing atmosphere. Utilising natural materials, the curved wood tambour walls contribute shape and texture, providing a refreshing contrast to the typically stark white walls of clinical settings. Vast windows looking onto a private leafy courtyard offer abundant natural light while maintaining privacy. These views were placed at the forefront of the project to preserve a sense of wellbeing and provide a welcome distraction for patients during their procedures!
