The centre for dentistry in Hamburg by Jürgen Mayer H.
The architect´s description:
The centre for dentistry is situated in a medical center in Hamburg St. Georg, close to Hamburg’s lively downtown. Free standing core elements devide the open space into different programmatic zones. These elements host independend workstations, an x-ray room and different other medical facilities. One rotating element next to the waiting area transforms a closed examination room into a stage for a medical auditorium. Sloped tops of the cores contain indirect lighting with integrated luminous ceilings. The color scheme in blue and brown shades moves freely from floor to wall to ceiling and gives the illusion of an endless space continuum.
