This was a renovation project for a dental clinic in Tokyo that was attached to a residence.Space emerged from the director’s desire to place importance on communication to build trust with patients and the desire to create a resort-like atmosphere. Located near a riverbed, the surrounding area is blessed with a natural environment. The exterior entrance is decorated with craftwork, a hobby of the director’s mother.There is a gently shaped corrugated bench in one corner of the waiting room, and in front of the counter, there is a large screen TV monitor. The design is designed to attract those waiting to see a doctor and prevent boredom. The finishes are unified with natural wood grain and white materials with texture and feel, giving the clinic an open and clean feeling.
