Soft curves and rounded elements in the design of this 12th floor 1500sf dental office allude to the clouds outside, and evoke the touch of femininity the doctor desired. The majority of the space is a white shell, allowing light and shadow to emphasize the curves and to serve as a neutral backdrop to select areas of color that animate the space. The sense of openness and transparency is reinforced through the sharing of natural light from the exterior windows through the glass walls in the perimeter offices.

Client Testimonial

“The goal for my office was to create a unique and comfortable environment that reflected my personality within a small space. I wanted to appeal to an upscale patient base and a wide range of ages, from toddlers to adults. FORMA, in a creative way, proposed solutions that resulted in numerous architectural awards."
