At Hatch functionality for our clients is of utmost importance, and dental clinics are some of the most complicated spaces we design in this respect. For Dr. Siwoski’s 6000 sq.ft. clinic located in Vernon, BC, we worked closely with the staff and equipment suppliers to ensure each room featured the most effective layout for practitioners and clients alike. In a clinic of this size, housing 6 treatment rooms, 3 surgical suites and 4 hygiene bays, not to mention the remaining staff work areas, it is important that the layout and function of each space is as efficient as possible to aid in smooth daily operations. Because we were able to be involved in each step of the process and hands-on from the beginning, every inch meshes in a cohesive finished product.

Another one of our main goals when designing for dental clinics is from an aesthetic perspective – creating an environment that helps put patients at ease, a space that feels comfortable and calm from the minute they step through those front doors. For this large clinic we incorporated monochromatic finishes with varied textures and subtle feature lighting as consistent design elements that connect each space throughout this clinic.

Warm wood tones in the flooring and millwork bridge that gap between the dark and light finishes throughout. Stepping into the expansive lobby you approach a curved reception desk, the shape mirrored on the back wall and overhead with a floating wood ceiling above. Feature walls boast a subtle tone on tone plaster application that is not only visually appealing but also eco-friendly and proven to help boost your feeling of wellbeing. These minimalist finishes are carried throughout the rest of the clinic promoting a calming atmosphere throughout. All of that said, there are two rooms where we designed something drastically different; the surgical rooms finished in completely in black to add an interesting contrast to the rest of the clinic.
