When Dr. Terran Strang of College Park Dental in Lloydminster, AB went to expand and build a new practice, he engaged the services of Bold Interior Design Inc. in Edmonton, AB.
Design elements requested by Dr Strang included the clinic to be warm, inviting and modern with a sophisticated luxurious presence. After an initial site visit, it was clear that the vast amounts of natural light flowing into the space from three exposures would be a clear defining element. Inspired by the natural light and the existing branding colour of blue, the materials palette was selected using light warm grey floor tones, light hued reconstituted wood veneers with pops of black marble and blue glass tile accents in key areas. The branding colour was further incorporated into the design with the selection of simple, modern cylindrical lights to help define space.
As the reception desk and waiting area is the heart of a clinic as well as the first and last impression a Client has of the built space, special attention was made to these areas. With the reception desk being at the heart of the clinic and open to all adjacent areas, special attention was paid to the acoustics of the space. TURF Design linear acoustic baffles in a charcoal grey were added above the desk to create a design feature. Adding a touch of blue to the space, custom Lumium Lighting linear lights were used to punctuate the reception area as a focal point. Colour-changing RGB lights were used in the kick of the reception desk as well as in the wood bulkhead above. By using RGB lights, College Park Dental has the opportunity to have a bit of playfulness to the space and change colours depending on the season: Halloween, Breast Cancer Awareness, Christmas and more.
Lastly is the waiting area which was designed to provide a sanctuary while waiting for an appointment. An open, comfortable and natural light filled area, a custom bench adorned in black marble, grey vinyl and the same wood veneer help provide a sense of luxury and coziness all at the same time.
The end result of College Park Dental is a space that truly invites, calms and creates a lasting impression and experience for the staff and patients.
