Smile Studio on Chattanooga’s historic Southside is the result of a modern, artistic vision made possible through collaboration between HK Architects, the client Dr. Marie Farrar, and general contractor Mike Berry. We redesigned the minimalist office to maximize the dramatic verticality of the relatively small space, using a full palette of materials from cherrywood and polished concrete to translucent resin panels and stainless steel. From the beginning, Dr. Farrar was committed to making the project environmentally conscious and sustainable. Totaling only 872 square feet, Dr. Farrar’s orthodontics office includes one private treatment room, three treatment stations, a waiting area, reception, cleaning station and mezzanine. It is the smallest project to receive LEED certification in the city of Chattanooga.
