zurbarán clinic

Dental surgery in Madrid



This minimalist style clinic combines different white shades looking for delicate contrasts and a simple mixture of materials. The result is a clear space fully integrated with the furniture, which provides a sense of spaciousness and cleanliness.



Building area : 80 sqm Location: Madrid, Spain Client: Private


This clinic is located in the mezzanine of a residential building near the Castellana Avenue, in the heart of Madrid. The space is indirectly illuminated through several generous patios offering a homogeneous zenith light that is intensified by the dominant white atmosphere.

The arrangement of the spaces is based on a double circulation, one for the private rooms used by the staff and doctors and one for the public areas. The minimal style of the interior and the predominant white color is subtly contrasted by the different finishes of the materials, from glossy to matt, and by the translucent glass walls enclosing a surgery room.

From the reception area, where a simple piece of furniture functions as an information desk, the patients enter into a neat, sober and clean environment that intends to transmit the professional and hygienic character of this private health center.

The combination of opaque and translucent planes articulates the program along the main corridor, where the different types of doors indicate the uses of the rooms behind. The interior elevation is made by modulated lacquered wood panels, including some built-in closets. The frozen glass used for the mobile partitions creates an atmospheric blue shade, which is contrasted with the warm brightness of the lights receding from the ceiling.
