Weissraum Dental Surgery by Ippolito Fleitz Group

Dentist Mattias Fierbiger chose the space for his new dental office; an old dancing studio in a historical art deco building. The space had high ceilings with magnificent stucco detailing and beautiful oak wood flooring. Though Dr. Fierbiger had a vision for his soon to be office, he decided to call in design enthusiasts Peter Ippolito and Gunter Fleitz of Ippolito Fleitz Group to take charge of the interiors.

The dental office is called Weissraum Dental Surgery, Weissraum meaning white space, which became a driving force for the interior design. All of the historical detailing was kept intact and carefully touched up while hints of gold were added for the feeling of opulence. The waiting room is decked out in unique modern furniture, gold shelving punched into the white walls, and white sheers wrapping the space, reminiscent of a modern lounge to give the feel of hospitality and service.

Throughout the rest of the space fluorescent tube lighting is not only used as a source of light but also a repetitious design element. The office walls are made of glass which is treated with a tiny mirror grid towards which gets tighter towards the center to make the space private. People passing by the outside of the office would only be able to see the flooring and the stunning ceilings.
