estudio arquitectura hago: dental office

‘dental office’ by estudio arquitectura hago, málaga, spain image © javier callejas sevilla all images coutresy of estudio arquitectura hago



madrid-based estudio arquitectura hago has sent us images of their new ‘dental office’, positioned within the second floor of a building in málaga, spain. wrapping the center of the spatial layout, a white translucent glass wall forms a luminous corridor which links the public areas and patient rooms. the interior functions follow an unenclosed programmatic progression, beginning with the reception and waiting area contained by a folded and curved wood partition. after turning the corner, the following laboratories, storage, sterilization, offices and medical rooms are revealed.


placed along the north-facing facade, natural lighting floods the perimeter patient rooms and is graduated through the glass into the waiting areas.

  • Where is the Privacy gone??????

    Raffles College Sydney says:
  • besides the obligatory barca and eames chairs. looks really fresh, nice contrast between a highgloss medical environment and a more natural homelike ambiance.

    but i have to admit that i would also appreciate some privacy during my consult!

    cj says:
  • Nice project. I would love to have a dentist with an office like that! I live in Montreal, Canada and NEVER seen anything like it. How is it possible that a country with so many economic problems, still produces such beautiful projects, while more ‘stable’ countries like Canada, has nothing like it?

  • Superbe Barcelona Chair of Mies

  • Wednesday 18th 0845 I’m supposed to have a consult with Bert. He’s my dentist. And more important: he’s one of my dearest friends. Nevertheless I would certainly cancel the consult if he would welcome me in a slaughterhouse like this.

    Janappelgaard says:
  • All that glossy white glass only reminds me of teeth. Some sort of dental fetish?

    georgian says:
  • The interior of the dentist seems to be very awesome. These kind of dental clinics are attract the patients .
