Normally, clinic is definitely not one of a destination to be thought of, except for the time of sickness or unwell. But to care more about your health and have it checked up from time to time won’t be such a bad idea. Therefore, this dental clinic, DENTAL BLISS, was meant to create the feeling of relaxation and warmth to lessen visitor’s stress from spending time in the small space with strangers and make it feel ordinary to go to clinic by routine.

TSR Building Architectural Main Concept
The clients are a family (a father and a son) who are psychiatrists and have been running a mental health clinic in Minato ward in central Tokyo for fifty years. Although the clinic has a long history housed in its current old wooden building, it became necessary for it to relocate due to a road schedule based on an urban plan formulated immediately after the Japanese defeat in World War II. In accordance with the relocation, the family decided to purchase an old building a five-minute walk from the clinic and build a new building on the site in order to reopen the clinic there. The beginning of this project was to the dismantling of the old building.

Reinterpretation of typical elements of wooden architecture ; folded space.
We tried to reinterpret the traditional appearance of wooden architecture, pitched roof and big canopy, under the concept of “folding” referred to “ORIGAMI”- a traditional Japanese paper work.
The roof, wall and canopy- the outer elements of architecture- are integrated and considered as a sheet of paper, split off and folded to each direction like “ORIGAMI”. The gesture of “ORIGAMI” brings the gaps and openings to the space underneath, generates the light, flow lines and the functions. The folded skin obscures the architectural articulations and boundaries, integrates the separated functions into one volume. Openness and closeness seamlessly continues, visitors would find themselves in the entirety and separation at the same time, ambiguous space.

Saijo Clinic is a private mental health clinic with short-care/group-care programs on the 11th floor penthouse of a building facing Shinjuku Gyoen Park, 58ha urban park located in central Tokyo. The penthouse was originally built as a part of a gigantic signboard on rooftop. The sign graphic was later abolished by newly introduced landscape regulations, however, the space inside was left over. In designing the interior of the clinic, we sought to incorporate the extraordinary contrast between different urban scales.

Why do healthcare spaces have to be cold spaces?
This has been the underlying question since the beginning of our proposal. In fact there are several activities that go on in a clinical space, some regarding actual medical treatments and others related with social and reception areas. Although one might consider the treatment areas to be central in a dental clinic, this project aims to reinforce the social and humane side of healthcare facilities, by proposing two distinct and opposite environments: the clinic space and the social space. The first is a rigorous, hygienic and professional space, mainly in white materials, that aspires to provide confidence and serenity to the patient. The second is a space for meeting, relaxing and comfort, a way to distance the patient from the clinical mindset.

AB design studio creating a high-design | high-tech space for a new pediatric dental office in Southern California, named simply as “Sugarbug.” Our client wanted a fun, explorative, out-of-the box designed interior to provide services to his dental clients. The design of the interior was mainly directed by focusing on the experience of the child patient. Also important in the process of designing this interior was a focus placed on branding. Like many of our commercial tenant improvement projects, this project focuses on enabling the architecture of the space to contribute directly to the Sugarbug brand that the client is creating. The finished product will blend together all the aspects of the business of running a contemporary dental office through a well thought out and comprehensively designed architectural, functional, informational and graphical experience.

In the world of medicine where leading edge technology and science are key factors in services provided to patients, the opportunity arose to design the premises for an advanced dentistry practice – the Brighton Implant Clinic. The site is a brick Victorian building in Brighton, United Kingdom and is made up of a basement and four floors above ground. The practise is composed of a dental prosthetics lab where dentures and implants are fabricated on the same day as the patient is being treated, allowing the patient to leave the premises with a concluded treatment not having to return to the practice in the future. The practice also has a state of the art CAT scan allowing three-dimensional imagery of the skull in order to assist surgeons in the placement of implants.

Given the fact that the client was a newly arrived surgeon in Thessaloniki (Greece), we were handed the task of creating a memorable office space, providing an experience as distant as possible from the usual image one associates with a visit to a doctor’s studio.
