CROSSROADS DENTAL WELLNESS
With the location selected in a new LEED Silver Certified building in Vancouver the client, Dr. Kao, retained SSDG Interiors to develop a contemporary design concept to suit his growing family practice. Windows on only one side of the building challenged the design team to utilize demountable glass walls and glossy white finishes creating a clean, bright and spacious workplace. Bright accent colours and stainless steel details added vibrancy to the sophisticated environment.
Repositioning the entry doors allowed direct access to reception and the business centre while creating a comfortable seating area and room for a children’s play area. The five internalized operatories were visually expanded with glass walls, graphics and targeted lighting. At the end of the corridor, contemporary artwork conveys peace and harmony that reflects the client’s holistic and environmentally friendly dental practice.
“We mentioned to Dr.Kao multiple times that SSDG was the savior of this project. Coordination and design was very much ‘off the rails’ until they became involved…We feel the tenancy design is the best at Crossroads and we hope [SSDG] will win some industry awards for their vision and execution, plus a humanitarian award for navigating such a challenging project. Good work – Congratulations.”
