Westwind Dental, a new contemporary dental clinic inspired loosely by the comforts of hospitality, is situated on the edge of the fast-growing family community of Spruce Grove, Alberta, Canada.
The owners wanted to create a practice that was comfortable for both patients and staff, yet still maintained an ease of everyday function. It was important to the vision of the clinic to incorporate other sensory comforts such as heated concrete floors, four fireplaces, custom plaster wall features, quartz countertops, adjusted color temperature lighting within support areas, automated window coverings to reduce glare, and zoned heating and ventilation. These features were integrated into the layout to create a clinic that would be durable for the day to day wear of a commercial space.
The company hired Jennifer Buchanan Interior Design, an award-winning, full-service interior design firm specializing in dental clinic, healthcare, and corporate office design, to execute the core design of the practice. JBID was able to provide valuable design strategy and business consultation to enhance the clinic’s space.* The agency chose to incorporate live edge wood slabs along the reception desk to balance the stone and plaster within the area, thereby enhancing the warmth of the natural wood.
Lumetta was specified by Wow Lighting Inc. to illuminate the space with our 42” Shadow Drum Pendants; utilizing our inner diffuser color D149-Slate and our D921-Trans Cool as the outer shade. The Shadow Drum Pendants were the perfect choice for the ambient lighting solution and beautifully complemented the temperature and the juxtaposition of the cold stone and warm wood elements.
Lumetta’s Shadow Drums are highly desirable for their exceptional quality and craftmanship, and their appeal of playing on double layers of opaque and transparent shades, creating vivid yet subtle lighting. Built with welded steel and aluminum and our exclusive antimicrobial and washable TransLumenate® and Lumenate® diffusers, these luminaires forge a love for natural shapes that combine functional form and aesthetics, fitting perfectly in any 21st century décor.
*The Westwind Dental office interior design project won the 2020 Oral Health Magazine Award.
