From the architect. Smiles By Dr Cecile was an existing dental clinic that was going through a rebranding as they wanted to give it a ‘re-birth’ as a premiere and first aesthetic dental clinic in the Philippines. Typical dental clinic designs would be conservative, ubiquitous, and very clinical. It thus called for a design that is to be the complete opposite of these typical clinic design traits avant-garde, modern, unique and fresh, and vogueish.

The spaces were designed with its cross-sections as a starting point. Cross sections were shaped at every 1-meter segment of the entire space, and were then connected to each other, forming a continuous surface that weld walls, ceiling, and flooring into one amorphous shape, mimicing the developmental behavior of a typical tooth as well.
