Keenan Smith Dentistry

Greenville, SC

This 3,100 SF dental office blends elements of residential and commercial architecture to create a welcoming environment for anxious patients. To design a space that feels safe, comfortable, and calming, the design team avoided typical clinical materials and details, instead opting for a warm, human-scale materials palette of stone, timber, metal, and glass. Large windows provide natural light and comforting views to the outdoors from the lobby and treatment spaces, while elements such as intricate detailing on the wood eaves, rain chains, and gables reference familiar residential forms.

The interior design complements the rustic exterior materials with a gently curved stone reception desk. A relaxing neutral color palette, art work, and visual connections to the outdoors all contribute to a soothing atmosphere.
