Serene interiors and playful architecture: a welcoming new dental practice in Kampen On the edge of the new housing district ‘Stationskwartier’ in Kampen

BURO S ARCHITECTS designed this accommodation for a young and growing dental practice. With most of the architecture in this new district being of rather traditional design, it was the client’s wish as well as a municipal requirement to add a new building that would stand out as a dynamic, striking volume, easy to recognize both from the residential area and the nearby highway. Additionally the client wanted the building to convey the values and mission of their practice, where patients’ comfort and wellbeing always come first. The practice also had to be as compact as possible with potential to expand in the future.

The design was influenced by three main principles: the official guidelines for the organization of dental practices; the way the building presents itself in the Stationskwartier district; and how patients experience their visit to the practice.

A dental practice has to meet the highest standards of hygiene, safety and privacy. This requires a completely separate routing and zoning for staff and patients. To achieve this the design efficiently divides all functions on the ground floor among three zones: one with six treatment rooms, one that accommodates all technical and facility rooms and routing for staff, and one that combines the reception area with routing for patients. A clear and logical set up, allowing for a daily routine that is both productive and ergonomical. On the first floor, used exclusively by staff, the same three zones are applied to organize the various functions: breakroom, locker rooms and offices.

By pushing the outermost of the three zones all the way to the edges of the building envelope, the first floor gets a staggered, sculptural look. On the southeastern side of the building this creates a playful and dynamic architectural accent, on the northwestern façade at Blauwe Engel the design emphasizes the entrance to the practice. The whole building presents itself open and inviting in all directions, different and surprising from every angle. The red brick facade refers to the surrounding urban development while the compact dimensions are reminiscent of the historical buildings in the center of Kampen. The grout has the same color as the bricks, which highlights the sculptural quality and harmony of the building even more.

Inside the practice, everything has been done to give patients the most comfortable experience. The minimalist approach and integral design create a serene and relaxing atmosphere that reduces stress and makes patients feel welcome. Thanks to ample daylight the compact building feels spacious and airy. Muted whites and greys are alternated with warm wooden panels near the treatment rooms, and bright red accents act as intuitive signage that helps patients with orientation.

Designing everything - from the exterior to the interior and furniture - in an integral process, ensures a high quality and consistent look and feel throughout the building. With this project BURO S ARCHITECTS has created a modern, innovative dental practice where employees love to work and where patients can get the tailored healthcare they deserve.
