Dēns Klinik is a new and fresh dental clinic in the center of Athens designed by Architect Dormina Exarchou that combines a calm environment with medical professionalism. The project is a transformation of an old office space of 70 m² with an open and free layout, into a dental clinic with two treatment rooms, a laboratory kitchen, an office area, a toilet and a waiting area.
The most surprising element when someone entered the old area was the brightness of the space. The feeling of an open space where the free flow of natural light is spreading into was inspiring for creating a calm, contemporary and soothing environment for the patients.
According to this feature, there was created a new division planning where the natural light should penetrate all the rooms without obstacles and give an open and calm sense to the patients. The clinic, spread over one floor is applied with a neutral color palette that evokes a sense of calm with the many areas which have been painted completely white.
Additionally a few touches of greenery added into the space for visitors to feel at ease. This intuitively refers to medical professionalism and follows the main aim that was to create a bright clean interior where the patients have a more enjoyable and worry free experience.
A contrasting dark color of the some functional surfaces, dental chairs, office table, sofa etc was added. The design also included new custom made special furniture. Most part of the flooring was removed so as to provide the substructure for the necessary equipment.
