Atelier Giavenale has completed a dental clinic that features blue curtains, playrooms for kids and colorful furnitures to create light and playful atmosphere for young and children patients in Schio, Italy.
Called Dentist Clinic SG, the architects addressed to playfulness and transparency as the themes of the project for the dental clinic dedicated to children.
The clinic, covering a total of 100-square-metre area, consists of three distinct areas within the main space and they are distinguished by the use of curtains hanging from circular rails.
To reinforce the limit of these spaces, there are custom-made carpets that regain the perimeter of the curtains on the ground.
"The feeling from the inside of these “rooms” is that of protection and intimacy, however, the visibility from the outside is ensured, so that parents have a view towards their children while they play," said Atelier Giavenale.
"The layout of the internal space aims to create a light and relaxing atmosphere, where young patients could feel comfortable while waiting for their appointment."
Patients are welcomed with the pastel shades of the furnishings, which were inspired by the production of Donald Judd, and the use of natural materials, help to the achievement of a friendly and relaxed mood.
The architects used moveable furnitures which can be adapted to the changing needs in the layout of the room and promoting new configurations, permitting to use the room differently every day.
Stools can be used both for sitting and as large baskets containing toys for children. The walls have been painted with special paint transforming them into blackboards. Different drawings appear every day, increasing the perception of a constantly changing space.
As the studio highlights, "the environment promotes the exchange and interaction between patients and their parents, eliminating the classic social barriers and mixing different worlds within the same space."
