Clevedon, Auckland, New Zealand

This design was a finalist in the International Dulux Colour Awards – Commercial Interior.

The Dental Practice is in Clevedon, an area renowned for polo and other equestrian pursuits.

The Dentist said that he would like his practice to be ‘the worst kept secret in the community because of its individuality’. He did not want the look of a mainstream dental practice, but he did have a tight budget.

Colour, pattern and texture were seen as economical means of creating impact. I specified a toothbrush floor lamp, cork floor tiles laid in a plaid pattern, leather, tartan and Donegal tweed upholstered furniture, industrial tables and lamps to create an up-market equestrian ambience.

“Donna was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was open to our thoughts and ideas, as well as those of our brand manager.

The result was 1st class and a true collaboration that can only be achieved when working with someone of such high calibre and a master of her field… 5 stars.”
