“A Mobile Dental Practice _ Smile on the Wheels”
The design has been initiated considering creation of feeling of natural environment within the facility and to get the feel of calmness, spatial, visual and physical connection with nature; which can make the patient comfortable within the facility.
The whole space has been divided in three parts physically and visually:
1) Right wing _Entrance lobby with reception and visitor seating with connection of one consultation room
2) Central area _With Rest room and Panorex
3) Left wing _ Clinical area with second consultation area
Both Right and Left wing area further divides internally by Aquarium/Fish tank. The Aquarium connects and separates the space. It also follows the principal of Biophilic concept and brings nature and playfulness into the space.
Also the Dental chair has been positioned in such way that patient can have the view of Aquarium as well as the external site by glass panel (Window) on front side. Hence, this visual and physical connection brings the patient comfort during the seating’s.
The materials and color combination used into the space also divides the three parts prominently. The Biophilic wall with having different coloured, sized, and patterned wooden strips makes the space bit dramatic. Since the same has been provided from one end to another end, it connects the overall space and also guides patients towards the respective consultation area.
Also small indoor planters have been provided at workstations, which brings the little pinch of greenery into the area. This makes the people working and patient walking into the space feeling more connected to nature.
The goal has been to achieve the ambiance which can bring a smile on the face of people when they walk in the space and bring them mental and physical comfort.
