Berkeley Orthodontic Clinic

location:Berkeley, CA
owner:Aloha Dentistry
completion:2011

An established successful orthodontic practice, Berkeley Orthodontics and an extremely busy pediatric orthodontic, Aloha Pediatric Dentistry, relocated their offices to a small site on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley. With only 6,070 square feet of site available, fitting two modern dental offices to meet current codes became quite a challenge. With such a small site, maximizing the useable area for the practices was important while maintaining a timeless and energetic design. The interior is inviting, warm and non-institutional and also serves the highly technical and complex interaction between patients, doctors and the staff. Extensive use of wood and translucent material brings warmth and light to the two clinics.
