This tenant finish project consisted of architectural services for a 2,216sf Periodontist office design.
The client wanted an modern contemporary office which incorporated elements of green design. We achieved this by creative design and the careful selection of materials. The main circulation space was conceived as a central gallery in lieu of a simple hall. We exposed the ceiling to the structure above to increase the volume of the space and we provided recessed niches into the wall for the display of artwork. A freestanding brush station was designed with a floating mirror and accent lighting was used throughout for ambiance. The style of space embraces the green aesthetic through the use of ecological materials including Dakota Burl, a unique composite material manufactured from sunflower hulls, a rapidly renewable agricultural by-product. This product was cut into slats and used to surface the reception desk and other casework elements. Another selection was the modularArts "VortexBloom" wall panels installed on one wall in the waiting room and as accent panels in the central gallery space. These cementitious, mineral composite panels have been favored by architects for their superior fire properties, relative light weight, and absence of harmful, off-gassing content. The pattern was selected for its organic feel and contribution to the overall design objective.
