For over a year we have been working on a long-distance commercial project, a dental office in New Orleans, LA. In late 2018, our clients reached out to us about an endodontic practice that they were building from the ground up in Lakeview, a scenic northwest New Orleans neighborhood with signature bungalow-style buildings. From afar we worked with our clients, and their architect and builder who were all local to New Orleans on this new construction project. Early this February, the project was finally ready for a furniture install! On today’s blog we will preview some of the in progress photos from this New Orleans dental office.
Our clients envisioned their Lakeview cottage to have a chic, residential feel. They wanted the interiors to be comfortable and inviting. They specifically believed that an office that felt more like a home would help ease some of the uncomfortable feelings that their patients may have when they come in for a treatment. We were happy to take on this challenge remotely!
The building is an 1,850 square foot, one story office on a corner lot. The landscaping has not been completed, but here is a look at the exterior of the bungalow-style office.
In the office lobby, we wanted durable and stylish pieces to make it feel inviting. It was also a priority to have details that highlighted New Orleans artisans. We incorporated many pieces of our clients’ art collection by local artist Martin LaBorde.
We also incorporated all Julie Neill lighting in the lobby. She is a New Orleans based lighting designer with a specialty in whimsical and custom pieces. Here is a close-up of the Julie Neill gold leafed chandelier.
Artist sketches framed in gilded frames add even more interest to the lobby wall.
Beyond the lobby, in the office bathrooms you will find this stunning crystal Julie Neill sconce.
It was a design goal for each space to have a consistent and fresh feel. The treatment rooms kept with a fresh mix of cool grays and whites.
Additional art pieces of New Orleanian, Martin LaBorde were framed in each space for added character and a personal touch.
Here is a glimpse into the breakroom with a modern Eames table and warm gray chairs. The chandelier is also a Julie Neill design.
Our plans are to photograph even more of this office later this year. We are definitely looking forward to making another trip out to New Orleans!
