The design concept for this progressive dentistry practice focuses on a rich palette of materials evoking a simple construction for creating interior spaces. The project demonstrates that design and eco-friendly practices can work symbiotically to provide a warm, healthy place for patients to receive quality dental care.
Durable materials and finishes are suitable for a health care facility while containing high post-consumer recycled content. Sourcing ecologically friendly materials and suppliers is part of a feedback mechanism that informs the ultimate composition of the space. Because natural daylight is important in providing a warm, organic feeling, we chose ecoresin panel products for translucent partitions, and the installment of compact fluorescent fixtures and lamps minimizes energy usage for ambient and task lighting.
