Occupying a coveted street level corner location in a high-rise office building right on Connecticut Avenue in Chevy Chase, MD gave this 1600sf Prosthodontics Office a million dollar street presence. The doctor, young, handsome, a sports-car driver, cutting edge all the way, wanted an office that reflected his progressive persona and pushed the envelope on all levels. Totally paperless, all digital, with the latest in technology throughout, Obeid Dental caused a splash as soon as it opened, when CNN immediately approached the doctor for an interview.
Walking through the space during the daytime, with the abundant daylight streaming in from all directions makes for a soothing and cheerful environ. Come nighttime, the space could be mistaken a cool clubby go-to spot.The Office received a 2009 Gold Award in the Healthcare Category from International Interior Design Association (IIDA) and the 2009 American Institute of Architects/ Northern Virginia Chapter Jurors’ Citation Award in Interior Architecture.
The project was most recently awarded the 2009 American Institute of Architects/ Potomac Valley Chapter Merit Award in commercial architecture. The jury commented that,”The meticulous attention to detail permeates all aspects of this small dental office. The result is a sublime intimate environment with plenty of interest to captivate visitors.”This project was featured in an article on FORMA’s Medical work in the Fall 09 issue of Architecture.
