Text description provided by the architects. New space for Dental Clinic D.VISION was opened after refurbishing ground floor at 19th century apartement house in Prague. Beyond the regular dental treatment D.VISION practice also oral surgery, according to such a sensitive theme one of the main goals of architectural design was to break-through the stereotype of cold and often stressful enviroment of health care centres.

Rounded wall with oak veneer is the central motif and links the space of three treatment rooms and waiting area. Beyond the pleasant oak texture the atmosphere of waiting room is characteristic for its ubiquitous painting by Alexey Klyuykov and Vít Svoboda the members of CAP. Those golden graffiti naturaly leak in the interior from the street with its free funny attitude.

The oak wall also comes through the surgeries and together with light glass mosaic tiling brings calm enviroment for precise and concentrated dentist´s work. The oak veneer is designed in contrary with white furnishing in all treatment rooms, where the white colour associates purity, which is natural and important in health care. The space harmony is achieved by interaction of pleasant character of natural material and perfectness of white colour. The interior is lit by series of round ceiling lights, which freely flow all around the space.
