r.o.i. Design has enjoyed our relationship with Dr. Ryan Freeland over the last five years as he developed his dermatology practice housed in their incredible building at 1673 Gezon Parkway. His commitment to veterans is evident from his reserved parking spaces, his military holiday celebrations, and his team’s military-patterned scrubs.
We worked on the initial concept with Jon Blair of R2 Design Group and First Companies, then the Phase 2 expansion, and most recently, the Phase 3 expansion that created more clinical, patient, and employee spaces to accommodate their growth.
While Phase 3 added so many needed spaces and followed the brand and direction that makes Wolverine Dermatology so great, the star of the remodel was the new military-themed café break room.
This new break room is large, with seating for 50 people, including bar seating for 16, lounge and dining seating for 34, and access to an exterior patio with outdoor seating for 20. This cafe features some amazing details, including oversized copper pendant lights, yellow banquette seating, extensive use of reclaimed wood at the bar, and a soon-to-be-added actual propeller from a vintage military aircraft.
But most impressive is the display wall that features a flag that Dr. Ryan flew home from his tour in Afghanistan and the oversized custom ribbons that describe the special honors earned by so many.
We salute Dr. Ryan Freeland and his commitment to honoring those who served in our country’s armed forces.
