Renovation of an existing fast-food restaurant into a contemporary dental clinic.
This received a Design Honor Award Citation from the Delaware Society of Architects.
The exciting challenge in this renovation project was to creatively adapt a boarded up
fast food establishment, alias "Jack in the Box", into a sleek and contemporary dental
office with shelled space for a future optometrist suite.
Aside from the obvious mission of artfully converting the existing 30' by 30' structure, the architect was
committed to a two-part design philosophy:
(1) The Architectural Design statement communicates an attitude of the owner (in this case a forward- looking
approach to quality dental care).
(2) Thoughtful Architectural Design reduces stress and contributes to patient well being.
The design, through an interaction of form, material, and texture, develops an interplay of space and
natural light which penetrates into the open-plan operatory, waiting area, and consultation suite.
