The practice has a total area of about 300 sqm and comprises of 6 treatment rooms, one sterilization room, one conference room, a patient lounge and a multifunctional island, which is placed in the middle of the practice. This island encompasses important functions such as a reception desk (with an additional visitor counter), an x-ray room, a back office and a kitchenette.
The organically shaped island, which is surrounded by transparent glass walls, is the main eye catcher of the practice interior. The surrounding walls represent the geometrical counterpart and are characterized by a monochrome overprint of the Viernheim forest. This natural, all-embracing forest structure represents in fact the backbone of the practice design and generates a positive effect on the clients mind.
Another characteristic interior feature is the design of the floor covering for which the technology of self levelling compound made of several colour components was used. The result is a continuous and jointless floor covering which pays homage to a forest glade my means of freehand design patterns.
Another significant architectural aspect of the interior design is the fusion of the colour and lighting concept. The entire colour palette of the walls, the floor covering and the ceiling is based on the utilisation of non-colours (only white, anthracite and shades of gray have been applied). In addition to this, the surface of all deployed dental equipment appears in silver-gray colour. The drafted lighting concept includes not only the basic lighting of the rooms but also the LED illumination of the white-coloured practice island with programmable colour scenarios. This is complemented by the colour orange from the Dental INN emblem in the form of small pieces of furniture and working clothes of staff members.
As a final addition to the design concept, a sound concept for all treatment rooms, the conference room and the lounge has been implemented. An audio and visual environment has been created as a unique composition that contributes to the relaxation of all clients and staff.
