The Monier Dental Clinic
1405 Jackson-Keller Rd.
San Antonio, TX 78213
The project was the first dental office completed by Stephen J. Kramer Architecture + Design. It involved the complete renovation of an existing building that the Owner bought as a foreclosure property from the RTC. The original building was an almost 3000 s.f., single story, wood framed structure with a flat roof. The renovation involved removing all of the interior walls of project and reconstruction of a new pitched roof as well. The remodeling transformed this 1960’s era building into a modern dental facility.
After gutting the interior of the structure the office was laid out such that four exam rooms were outfitted initially for use on one side and additional four left vacant on the opposite side for future expansion. The doctor’s office and break area were located at the back of the building for privacy while the waiting and reception area were planned for the front of the building giving them easy access and visibility. The interior of the building was reserved for the support areas such as lab, sterilization, and storage. Within approximately two years of opening the clinic Dr. Monier had hired an additional dentist and outfitted the second group of exam rooms. This project became a stepping stone for many other dental clinics for the firm.
