Oak Ridge Dental Offices
While still early in design, this beautifully symmetrical building is well into the exterior textural and material development phase. The light-colored stone gives a glowing base to the building and is accompanied by large expansions of glazing that extend horizontally to let in the natural daylight and surroundings views. This horizontality is also amplified by the darkened utility bricks and the extended roof overhangs, which reach out to provide protection from direct sunlight. The brick also helps to seclude some of the buildings more vital functions and provides needed privacy for future dental offices within. Different from many of our other designs, this building has a steel frame and bar joist system designed to handle its large load, covering the 29,271 square feet of dental space within.
