Seattle Kids Dentistry

This project was an interior build out of a children’s dentist office in an industrial zone off the Puget Sound, in a former porcelain tile factory.  Our clients wanted a warm, welcoming and vibrant space free from the usual sterile and generic medical office feeling.  Demolition of existing sheetrock revealed board-formed concrete walls full of character, and we decided to expose them. To balance the cool grey of the concrete we added lots of warm natural wood.  Layered over this is a bright, playful and decidedly kid-friendly color palette of bright yellow and a variety of blues. Taking our inspiration from the barnacle covered rocks of the surrounding Puget Sound, we designed an abstracted barnacle shape that dances along the walls and ceilings throughout.

The senior designer for the Seattle Kids Dentistry project was Mira Eng-Goetz.
