This project's catalyst was a unique opportunity: 123 Dentists acquired a space near the UBC campus to build their practice. Studio Liat was asked to create a bright, airy clinic that exuded warmth and a friendly environment despite low ceilings and small areas, it was critical to find materials that added a sense of openness. Plus, because of its clinical function, the selected surfaces had to pass stringent third-party certifications and withstand disinfection protocols and daily use. Liat Nirenberg, owner and designer of Studio Liat said, “The materials needed to be highly durable, wear well, and support a sterile working environment, Wilsonart’s product offerings met all of the above.”

The design team used Wilsonart’s Traceless™ Black Velvet HPL and Wilsonart® Traceless™ Snow White Velvet HPL in the reception area, providing a durable, non-porous material that could be easily cleaned with the added benefit of a unique fingerprint-resistant technology. Natural Recon HPL added a calming natural element to the reception area by being clad to the walls that could be seen throughout the office at different vantage points. Wilsonart® Quartz Rain Shadow was used in the treatment rooms providing a non-porous, scratch-resistant surface while also juxtaposed with Wilsonart Satin Stainless HPL on all of the interior millwork, adding a sophisticated brightness.
