Centro Dentistico Decorato

DFG Architetti associati as Architects

The new Decorated Dental Center looks like a cutting-edge, iconic building, ambitious to become over time a point of reference for the town of Vittoria, in Sicily. It is the result of a complex and delicate work of recovery, structural consolidation, modification and requalification of a pre-existing building structure. The intervention made it possible to give new life to an object that had now completed its life cycle, also in relation to structural problems that compromised the static nature of the building.

 

The new Dental Center is a set of functions that revolve around the profession of Doctor Giuseppe Decorato, a passionate professional who puts the comfort and safety of his patients first. Each space of the clinic is designed according to the needs and well-being of the user, there are spaces for meetings and small conferences, in all private areas, such as the study and offices, and in all areas open to the public additional quality spaces for relaxation, leisure and waiting.

 

Green is a central element of the project, both as a presence inside the rooms and as an object of internal visuals. The use of large windows that maintain a constant relationship with the outdoor garden, with the landscape, with natural light, an element of psycho-physical well-being and connection to the outside world, is a conscious and measured choice.

                                      

The waiting room welcomes us into a dimension detached from the frenzy of the outside world, where only the flow of water from an ethereal internal fountain seems to testify to the passage of time. Golden filigrees embellish the luminous surfaces that enclose this magical space, in which warm light, nature and subtle shadows are arranged neatly on the geometric matrices, drawing the internal architecture of an out of the ordinary building.

 

Walking into the beating heart of the new dental office is like entering a clock face, where every element, every space is part of a gear that must work perfectly together with everything else, and you realize how many solutions, how many ideas, it took to reconcile every distributive, functional, technological, plant engineering, hygienic-sanitary aspect with the aesthetics, the beauty of this place, in an architecture that has not neglected even the anthropological, psychological and behavioral aspects of medical staff and patients, to offer maximum comfort when using any environment and instrumentation.

 

When nature is an integral part of the architectural composition, trees and plants become inseparable elements of the elevations. Green climbs up the facades and becomes a reference point for internal and external views. Architecture comes to life, it seems to move with the rising of the breeze and changes with the passing of the seasons. The interiors offer wonderful views while the outside is a perfect harmony between anthropic space and landscape context.

Dental Clinic Decorato

Reynaers Aluminium as Manufacturers

Going to the dentist… in a bright and welcoming home? It is possible at the Dental Clinic Decorato in Ragusa, Italy. Inside this airy, contemporary renovation project you will find a professional dental practice and a luxurious guest house that combine ultimate comfort with a spectacular view of the city below. Sunlight flows freely indoors thanks to Reynaers Aluminium windows and sliding solutions.


Redeveloping a pre-existing building with serious structural problems: it can be quite a challenge. Nonetheless, architectural firm DFG Architetti seized the opportunity to create something truly unique. “Indeed, the Dental Clinic’s design is strongly influenced by the original structure” say the architects. “But our philosophy, as in every project, aims at creating buildings that connect seamlessly to their surroundings and that create balance with climatic conditions such as sunlight and wind. We believe that we have respected our original idea and have created something different for this region.”

 

"We have respected our original idea and have created something unique to this region." - DFG Architetti Associati

 

Large dimensions and minimal frames
To compose a safe and welcoming environment for all the Dental Clinic’s visitors, DFG chose Reynaers Aluminium as its quality joinery partner. Large floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors help create transparent, open spaces with incredible views. For instance, an open corner variant of our SlimPatio 68 sliding system offers you an exceptional panoramic view as the meeting section of the two movable vents has a minimalistic width.

 

Similarly, elegant HiFinity sliding doors open up to the terrace, creating infinite views and letting in plenty of natural daylight. Discover the breath-taking Sicilian surroundings thanks to the system’s ultra-slim frames and large glass surfaces. What is more, you can visit the dentist practice in full comfort all year long thanks to HiFinity’s excellent thermal performance and easy-to-access “zero threshold” solution.

 

Futureproof features
Rebuilding the past means preparing for the future. That is why the renovated Dental Clinic has a futureproof design that takes all sustainable factors into account. Besides the solar panels on the roof, you will notice how the large window surfaces bring in a maximal amount of sunlight. This passive thermal gain keeps the building warm and bright in the winter in a most energy-efficient way.

 

But what about the hot Italian summers? Well, shaded and ventilated areas across the stark-white building help visitors escape the heat throughout the day. And to prevent further indoor heating, our ConceptSystem 77-Hidden Vent windows provide the perfect highly insulated solution. This subtle system, which carries the Swiss Minergie component label, keeps indoor temperatures constant and creates a uniform look of your façade thanks to its concealed element details.

 

"We are very happy to collaborate with Reynaers Aluminium. Our ambitious problem has become reality." - AFG Architetti Associati

 

In the end, DFG Architetti Associati are very satisfied with our versatile solutions: “Thanks to this collaboration, our project has become reality, respecting the initial idea of using slim windows that perfectly integrate into the architectural envelope.” Large glass dimensions and minimalistic profiles: with the help of Reynaers Aluminium windows and sliding doors, you will always leave Dental Clinic Decorato with a bright smile.
