The project for Colony Dental Associates was one of the first dental offices completed by the firm. In addition to a dental clinic on the first floor it also houses a office for the psychology practice of the Dentist’s wife. The site provided adequate access, size and a view to a pond behind the building. The architectural control provided the main challenge in the design of this project. The material choices for the building were severely limited by the architectural control committee in the First Colony area where the building is located.
The building walls could either be stucco or one of two approved brick selections. In addition, only one of two standing seam metal roof colors were allowed. In working with the Owner, we decided on the brick facade accented by arched windows and cast stone columns, window trim and a belt course to provide a classical contemporary looking exterior for the project. The interior of the dental office was arranged so that initially four operatories would be outfitted and used by the Owner but an additional four were provided on the opposite side of the building for future expansion. The facility has a spacious two story patient waiting area fronted by the granite reception counter. This building contains the highest quality materials including natural stones, faux painted walls, luxurious carpets, and custom built dental cabinetry. Technical innovations such as an inter-oral camera with video monitors for every operatory, digital x-ray, and medical gases piped to each chair insure that this facility will be the state of the art in dental care for many years to come.
