recycled glass dental clinic in torres vedras by MMV arquitectos

located on a first floor of a common building in the center of torres vedras in portugal, MMV arquitectos have re-interpreted the configuration of a dental clinic, in the search of new clarity and spatial character. through the application of colored recycled glass in different thickness, and different qualities, a mass of glazing vibrates like the cadency of the rhythms of nature – creating a perception of space that is constantly mutating. based on the selection and composition of the material, the interior fabric creates a singular equilibrium, which potentates the reflections and the vibrations of the light within the environment. the clinic is composed of a summary of white laminated wood, coated with white leather – giving the perception of a block of ice that has been excavated in sculptural way.
