when approaching the design, starsis took inspiration from teeth and the layout of the human jaw to create a plan from rounded, overlapping shapes. after applying this idea to the architecture, it resulted in an internal space in which the oval forms overlap. by limiting straight lines and placing curves inside the tight space, the organic aesthetic is maximized, creating a soft and friendly atmosphere within the orthodontist surgery.

the interior is defined by white walls lit with warm-colored lights, terrazzo furniture, wooden fittings built into the walls and plants full of lush greenery to provide a sense of ease and relaxation for those who visit the practice for treatment. these materials are combined by the steel furniture, which is finished with paint and placed above the terrazzo floor in perfect harmony.
