Ahmedabad’s Teeth Care Center is a welcoming space that is designed to have the best of aesthetics and functionality. A gleaming glass enclave, easy on the eye, with bright colour highlights brightens up the space.
The main objectives of the design as provided by the clients’ were to design it according to international norms and make it as see-through and eco-friendly as possible. Keeping this in mind, we intended to provide a relaxing and at the same time zealous ambience for the doctors, staff as well as the patients.
A full glass cabin was made to allow patients as well as staff to see what was going on without getting in each other’s way and without compromising on hygiene. We only used civil and interior materials that were eco-friendly to make it infection- free. The overall colour scheme chosen for the clinic was white so that patients do not feel like they are in a hospital.
Unlike most dental clinics, no pictures or posters of dental treatment are displayed in the waiting area.
MDF Cutting design elements are used in the ceiling of the waiting area. As design elements, green artificial plants and multi-coloured paintings on the walls created a sense of relief.
As per the client’s requirements, the director’s cabin was designed to give professional and corporate touch. This space took a break from the white theme.The clinic has green credentials too with certified eco-friendly floor tiles.
Energy-efficient lights are used. The plywood used was green building certified century. During the construction the low weight green building product AEROCON block was used. There is a recyclable Armstrong false gypsum ceiling.
Saint Gobain glass partitions aid the inflow of natural light, thus saving energy.
