Costa Dentistry

  • GTM Architects incorporated a striking black and white color scheme to create a modern design, accentuated by luxury finishes, at Costa Dentistry in Great Falls, Virginia.

    Upon entering the space, guests are greeted by a sculptural custom reception desk. It’s this modern, solid surface desk that anchors the entire waiting room and, along with the serpentine bulkhead, draws attention to the custom logo wall. While the black and white motif creates a dramatic effect, GTM Architects integrated touches of walnut wood millwork to add warmth throughout.

    To create the “O” in the Costa logo, two bendable LED fixtures are used that provide the perfect balance of contrast against the black wall. Luxury vinyl tile flooring appears as stone tile and offers durability while being easy to clean—an ideal finish for a dental office.

    The overall office design is a play on angles and curves that add both interest and functionality and present more private spaces. Black metal separation panels with a gradation of open circles keep natural light flowing throughout the space and still provide the necessary privacy between dental bays. Staggered lighting in the dental bays provides sufficient ambient light without a harsh glare around the ceiling-mounted TVs—which offer a range of entertainment options for clients including Netflix—allowing for a comfortable and relaxing experience. Beautiful yet functional staff rooms include a lab space, break room and private restroom.
