Tenant finish plans for new Innovation Space.
This new supermercado was designed with the client to maximize retail space on a tight lot, to provide expanded service to his existing customers.
This oral surgery center was designed from the ground up with direct input from the oral surgeon and office staff, to make the layout fit their needs now and in the future.
This former daycare facility was transformed into an orthodontist office, in collaboration with the orthodontist and dental equipment supplier.
The owners of this mostly vacant commercial building asked DSC to design a new first floor façade to replace the existing dilapidated storefront and gut the interior in order to attract new tenants. We took inspiration from the existing Mid-Century Modern second and third floor brick to design a cobalt blue glazed brick and aluminum storefront that looks like it could have been part of the 1960’s but also looks current. During construction, we discovered that the original turn of the century cast iron columns were still there, so we incorporated them into the design, resulting in a unique combination of new and old.
DSC was asked to revisit a previous project to reduce scope and provide renderings in order to visualize the project prior to construction. This medical office will improve quality of care to the doctor’s current patients as he expands his practice and provide better working conditions for his staff.
Our client required offices for multiple businesses – Trade X Group, Kids Dentist, and room for additional dental offices to provide full dental services in a single location. Design Studio C, Ltd. provided design and construction management services for the original building, and tenant improvements for Kids Dentist and Trade X Group in 2000. Later, Design Studio C, Ltd. provided design and construction management services for another dentist and orthodontist in the other suites. The dental offices were coordinated with Sullivan Schein.
