Located in the southern metro area, Comfort Dental sought to be an inviting and calming dental experience. The space was designed with large windows that allowed soothing, natural light to bathe the patient rooms as well as the employee break room.
This new cosmetic dental facility offers a bright, comfortable atmosphere located in the center of the City of Eagan.
One of the advantages of having a new facility was the chance to develop the exact vision Dr. Stanton wanted for her offices. She wanted a world-class facility to go wither her world-class services.
This client wanted the space to reflect a “hotel Aesthetic” with the colors, materials, and furnishings typically found in high end hotels. Contemporary lighting and decorative wall covering complete the design.
Working along with Dr. Stanton’s graphic designers, the logo was an integral feature of the space.
Every year, December is filled with music. Seasonal music of all sorts – every version of Feliz Navidad imaginable, wintry songs of celebration (and lament – “In the Bleak Midwinter”), and an abundance of sacred carols. Most years, my December weekends are bursting with practices, performances, and just general attendance at multiple choral events in the Twin Cities. I have sung Soprano with both the Valley Chamber Chorale and the Two Rivers Chorale, and both give concerts with a beautiful mix of the secular and sacred works for the holiday season. Take a listen – and be inspired.
Valley Chamber Chorale, as heard on MPR Taste of the Holidays Vol. 6, “I Heard the Bells” – traditional carol adapted and arranged by Bradley Ellingboe
Two Rivers Chorale
“O Come, All Ye Faithful” – traditional carol arranged for 4-hands piano and choir
“Still, Still, Still”
The traditional, rustic charms of New England are evident throughout the offices of Life Smiles in Plymouth, Minnesota.
The design is intentionally warm and cozy, utilizing residential furnishings, a color palette of warm whites and yellows and whitewashed woodwork to reflect the dentist’s feminine point-of-view.
Large windows bathe both the waiting room and treatment areas in warm, natural light, adding to the desired relaxed atmosphere while allowing calming outdoor views for patients and visitors.
The colors, materials and custom millwork reference a Cape Cod aesthetic and were accomplished within strict budgetary guidelines.
This Dentist wanted to expand his rapidly growing practice in his childhood town of Albany. The project was a new construction project including site programming, building shell construction, and interior design. Working with the rural vernacular of the surrounding context, the context informed the new building for this Dentist with an additional tenant space for another business.
