Programmatic investigation / sketch design for a joint dental practice
with annexed housing lodge and integrated parking. The brief asked
for a flexible concept, enabling to extend the practice or the housing
programme in the near future.|
The site is part of an industrial estate, while the area comprises
a mixture of suburban housing and industrial warehouses. The proposal
anticipates on the programmatic insecurity and the ambivalent setting.
It provides a neutral structure, capable of a flexible spatial organisation
and being able to adapt to programmatic changes. The materialisation
of the 'skin' will be done by translucent industrial sheets, it will
provide an appearance balancing between an appealing openess and a
decent remoteness. Housing and dentist practise are treated equally
and cannot be distinguished in the façade.
