Blueprint Dentistry Makes Its Mark in Holland, Michigan 

Blueprint Dentistry Makes Its Mark in Holland, Michigan 

The well-named Blueprint Dentistry is a rebrand from Dr. Kevin Kross’s previous Michigan Street Dentistry. Michigan Street was their old location. He wanted his new dental office to reflect his technical and sophisticated approach to complete and premier dental care. His new logo includes architectural lines and symbols that clearly state the focus on precision dentistry. 

r.o.i. Design met Dr. Kross early in the process and was engaged in shopping for real estate and recommending contractors. This gave our team time to get to know Dr. Kross and his vision. 

While he doesn’t partner with his wife, Brittany Mailloux DDS, they agreed to purchase a building and locate both practices in the same building, which allowed them to create a state-of-the-art lab that they both share. 

Blueprint Dentistry’s design elements reflect its brand. The lighting in the lobby is recessed linear LED that runs through the ceiling and continuously down the wall. The exam room corridor has a recessed cavity in the ceiling with unique box light fixtures that fit into the recess and create a special effect. 

The overall color scheme throughout is mostly black and white, which sparkles with accents of glass and specialty lighting. The reception desk is backlit with a frosted acrylic face with the logo and name etched into the material. In addition, the glass sliding doors with chrome barn door hardware in the exam rooms elevate a patient’s typical dental experience. 

The desk in Dr. Kross’s office is made from white concrete with flecks of silver and gold randomly embedded in the top. The private office is also set up to accommodate a second doctor. 

The lower-level break room also has a concrete table, which is 12 feet long, surrounded by Eames-inspired chairs. 

The journey from Michigan Street to 16th Street brought Blueprint Dentistry further towards its goals than just the distance between the two locations.

      Kraft Business Systems: New Office, New Look.

      Kraft Business Systems: New Office, New Look.

      When First Companies Inc. introduced r.o.i. Design to Jeff Cousins from Kraft Business Systems he said, “I don’t know design, I just want ‘cool’”. Jeff was very interested in every aspect of the new office. Dixon Architecture had been introduced a little earlier, and Ken Dixon had the space laid out and adjusted as needed to meet Jeff’s understanding of changing needs.

      Early in the interior design consultancy, we noticed and complimented Kraft Business Systems (KBS) on their logo. Not only is it good-looking, but it has been developed based on business values and images that support those values.

      KBS sells printers, but more importantly, printing solutions and technical innovations. The business is built on solving problems for their customers, and r.o.i. Design took that approach as they made interior design decisions.

      Each of the four key values were featured in their own areas:

      • “Honor our company heritage in the print and printer industry.” (Orange)

      • “Committed to continued innovation and I.T. for the paperless office.” (Green)
      • “Focused on our clients and committed to interpersonal communication.” (Light Blue)
      • “Look to the future with continued aspirations for creativity and growth.” (Dark Blue)

      The colors of the five values are very bold, but the overall palette is white, grey, and black, creating a neutral background for the reds, oranges, yellows, blues, and greens. Not only did r.o.i. Design color block some of the walls in logo colors, we also created custom graphics for large-scale wall covering whose imagery is very “techy”.

      As the design was coming to the finish line, Jeff commented, “This is cool, and I didn’t think I liked black, but I do!” The design was so well received that KBS borrowed finishes and accents for their other Michigan offices. That’s the best kind of compliment!

      Royal View Senior Living Remodel Gains Developer’s & Residents’ Approval

      Royal View Senior Living Remodel Gains Developer’s & Residents’ Approval

      Returning customer, Denis Johnson of Johnson Newhof & Associates, was so pleased with r.o.i. Design’s work at previous projects, they were confident that we could provide exceptional interior design and affordable public space furnishings for Royal View Assisted Living.

      Royal View is located just East of Canadian Lakes. This is an intimate property with a caring staff and sensitive amenities. The property had many features and finishes that remained. The remodel was focused on relocating medical equipment, improving staff spaces, and refreshing the residents’ dining room, beauty salon and common areas.

      For r.o.i. Design this meant furniture plans, lighting plans, finish and furniture selections, as well as selecting wall art and décor. We also provided light construction and carpentry services supporting the owner’s facility staff.

      Paying attention to our mantra: Budget, Brand and Beauty, we designed with budget in mind, kept the beach front theme of the property and the outcome was beautiful.

        Stellar Smiles creates an “Out of this World” Pediatric Dental Office

        Stellar Smiles creates an “Out of this World” Pediatric Dental Office

        Committed to the finest in dental care, Dr. Chris Powell married that with his passion for outer space to create a family-friendly office with surprising details. The front desk resembles a spaceship, the lobby features Saturn-inspired floating light fixtures, and the exam rooms could be space pods looking out into the galaxy with life-like murals of outer space. The walk to the exam rooms features color-coded carpet accents and entry signs using the symbols of planets.

        Dr. Chris worked with First Companies Inc. to lease space from Knapp Orthodontics and found an affordable way to open their doors to a welcoming neighborhood of families without compromising on design. As of November 2023, the second phase of the space is already in planning which will add open an exam bay and more space for staff.

        r.o.i. Design is grateful to be the designer for this unique dental office. We appreciate First Companies’ trust in our ability to work with Stellar Smilies and Knapp Orthodontics. Both offices are in the same building with entirely different looks.

            The Final Step of Design: Décor

            The Final Step of Design: Décor

            The contractor is gone, the furniture is in place, and everyone has moved in, but the space doesn’t feel complete. r.o.i. Design is on hand to assist our clients in selecting wall décor, accessories, and window coverings – an important part of making a space feel complete.

            Wall décor may be framed images that complement the design. That could mean realistic to abstract art, or company-related graphics. Other wall décor would include 3D sculptures, clocks, wall-mounted greenery, and more.

            Accessories may be occasional tables, tabletop silks and greenery, glass or ceramic vases and trays, floor lamps, baskets, books, sculptures, or decorative bowls.

            Window coverings in commercial spaces are typically solar shades. If a more residential look is desired, we can also design decorative fabric side panels.

            Our process in supplying these items includes site visits, décor selections and presentations, budgets and proposals, and installation. Typically a short turnaround, we can upgrade your space in 4 to 8 weeks.

            We can also make suggestions for seasonal decorations that you can purchase and reuse for seasons to come.

            For more information, reach out to Ronda Geyer at r.o.i. Design, rondageyer@roidesign, or 616-272-5302.
