Located on the east coast of Sicily facing the Ionian Sea, the White Space is an avant-garde private orthodontic clinic with the surreal space capsule design.
The interior wall surfaces and furnitures merge seamlessly into a continuous Corian white shell where cutting edge medical technology are implanted.
For most patients are children, Stuttgart-based architects Tobias Hegemann and Chiara Baccarini transformed the waiting area into a playful self-exploration environment.
Inspiration from architect:
bureauhub strongly believes in the pedagogical value of architecture and design We were inspired by two key aspects: the fascinating high precision of Orthodontics with its fast progressing techniques on one side and on the other children’s intuitive responsiveness to their environment. The challenge was to merge these two aspects in the space. Our design aimed to change conventional behaviors, like merely waiting for your visit, by releasing children into a state of self-directed exploration.
