Extension and Renovation of a dental clinic
The initial space of the dental office occupied 50 sqm and consisted of a small reception area and the open space of the operatory room and the laboratory.
The expansion of the dental office was achieved by adding a 30sqm space to the existing section, in order to meet the needs of a second operatory room and a small seminar space. The limited space and the irregular shape of the floor plan led to specific architectural interventions, which aimed at the full exploitation of the additional square meters but also at the upgrade of the existing spaces.
The waiting and reception area was expanded and located centrally on the new floor plan. The two operatory rooms were placed on either side of the waiting area. On the right side the pre-existing operatory room with the laboratory remained and on the left side the new operatory room with a small office-seminar space was placed.
Translucent glass partitions were chosen for the bordering of the two rooms in order to create the feeling of an open and private space simultaneously. The element of the reception desk that emerges through the new interventions, although inextricably linked to them, stands out due to its curved shape that enhances the space with movement and plasticity.
Respectively, the choice of white colours in each architectural element allowed the space to change according to the alternations of both natural and artificial lighting (warm – cold, dark – light).
