The project consists of the integral conditioning of a commercial space located in the Madrid neighborhood of Chamberí for the installation of a dental clinic and, in parallel, determine the parameters that will define the corporate image of the company.
Project Name: Dental Clinic in Chamberí
Studio Name: LANDÍNEZ+REY arquitectos
Project Location: Chamberí Neighborhood, Madrid (Spain)
The premises are arranged in two heights, with an upper floor access from the street that runs parallel to a broad facade front developed over five large gaps. The facade to the street, of northwest orientation, is located in a building with integral urban protection. Protection that prevents any reconfiguration of the facade gaps.
The necessary privacy demanded by each of the 3 dental cabinets with which the clinic is provided, as well as that of each one of the uses that these serve, mainly the sterilization room and the orthopantomography room, converts to the general space of circulation and waiting room in the real protagonist of the proposal.
Reception, waiting and customer service, as well as all the general circulations of the project are resolved with a geometry that aims to blur the limits of each of these uses, giving them continuity. This continuity is achieved by eliminating any edge and giving it a texture that accompanies and identifies that condition. Fluidity that contrasts with the parallelepiped geometry of each of the medical uses.
At the same time, and in three different shades of green, and in opposition to the introversion of technical uses, the spatial continuity with the outside of the clinic is sought at all times. Continuity that facilitates the availability, in front of the projected access, of an urban space as a widening of the street and “square” prior to the clinic.
These project principles are taken to the order and arrangement of lighting, to the color of continuous pavements, to the hierarchy of false ceilings and to the use of clean surfaces, and to the reduction of the number of joints in each constructive system arranged. All in three shades of green that identify the different public areas of the premises that, in continuity, generate a space that speaks of transparency, hygiene, precision and professionalism.
LANDÍNEZ+REY | equipo L2G arquitectos [el2gaa] is an architectural practice co-founded in 2000 and based in Madrid (Spain) by the architects David Landínez González-Valcárcel (Madrid, Spain) and Mónica González Rey (París, France). Both are formed as M.Arch (1999) in ETSAM-UPM (Faculty of Architecture of the Polytechnical University of Madrid, UPM) and both are also graduated as Building Engineers by UEM-Madrid (2013).

LANDÍNEZ+REY arquitectos [el2gaa] develops its activity as a working platform where architecture is sought from its capacity as a system generator. Systems capable of providing answers to both the place and the rest of the dimensions, scales and techniques demanded by each draft. Its work is based on the research that arises from the proposals presented to architectural competitions, many of them has been rewarded with awards and honorable mentions, others won and built. Among these works we can find the Badajoz, Coria and Plasencia secondary schools and the Malpartida de Plasencia and Jaraíz de la Vera Gym Pavillions for the Regional Government of Extremadura, Spain, the Rivas-Futura Underground Station for Metro de Madrid and the Municipal Music School of Sevilla la Nueva, Madrid.
