Dr. Nick Ritzema and his team have a vision for a more holistic practice where their dental patients’ complete health is considered. That meant they needed a space that included training space as well as enough room for growth. With the help of First Companies, they identified a building to purchase and renovate. First Companies called on r.o.i Design to help with creating a loft-like space that paid homage to the Grand Rapids history as the “Furniture City”.
Like the old furniture manufacturing buildings in Grand Rapids, the interiors have wood columns and beams, exposed brick, interior glazing, and vinyl flooring that resembles concrete floors. The space is warm, inviting, and offers a fresh take on an industrial loft. Some fun elements are the modular carpet tiles with metallic backings, hand stained cement blocks in the staff break area island face, herringbone wood planks in the exam rooms, and black conduit on the ceilings to connect the lighting.
r.o.i. Design provided lobby furniture that supported the industrial loft feel and worked with Kentwood Office Furniture, who provided the office furniture.
