Evanoff Dental Builds New Office 

Evanoff Dental Builds New Office 

Dr. Karl and Deidre Evanoff were introduced to r.o.i. Design by Dixon Architecture and First Companies. 

Evanoff Dental’s previous location in Muskegon didn’t allow for growth or the level of service and care they desired to provide their patients. 

From the beginning, it was clear that they wanted a simple and clean design that looked professional but now “showy”. They wanted all their patients to feel comfortable and welcome. 

The color palette was neutral but included some warm wood tones and hints of blue. 

Some of r.o.i. Design’s favorite features include: 

  • Painted board and baton siding in the reception area. 
  • Textured and blended carpets. 
  • Ceiling details in the exam hallways.
  • Ceramic light fixtures. 

Evanoff Dental moved into their space in 2022. Now their patients have a place where they feel comfortable and welcome. When talking to Dr. Karl about the project, he commented,  “Things are going very well. I am very happy with the outcome. Thanks for all your help.” We appreciate working with you as well.

Grass Lake Pediatric Dentistry Opens New Office

Grass Lake Pediatric Dentistry Opens New Office

When Dave Bordewyk of DGB Health Care Construction met with Dr. Melissa Potacki in January of 2022, he discovered she was looking for a more hands-on experience with materials, so he reached out to us for help.

r.o.i. Designer Megan Hoekzema met with Dr. Potacki, Dave, and contractor Tom Buchanan from Kasco and made a game plan for the interiors.

Megan provided samples and support so that Dr. Potacki felt confident in what her space would look like.

Key interior elements of the space include a stone wall with the business’ logo as you enter the space, a fun graphic wallcovering on the front of the reception desk, blue fan-shaped backsplash tile by the brushing station, and luxury vinyl plank throughout the walkways and treatment rooms.

r.o.i. Design also made selections for and procured their new lobby furnishings. As of May 2022, the new interior build-out is complete.

Wolverine Dermatology Creates State of the Art Break Room 

Wolverine Dermatology Creates State of the Art Break Room 

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.

    The Derm Institute of West Michigan

    The Derm Institute of West Michigan

    Dr. Kristi Hawley and business partner/husband Garrett Adams dream big. They put their sights on developing a compelling practice in Caledonia, Michigan that would offer general dermatology, outpatient skin surgery, psoriasis treatment, and cosmetic skincare. Dr. Hawley has an established reputation in psoriasis treatment and speaks to groups nationally. 

    r.o.i. Design was introduced to The Derm Institute of West Michigan through First Companies, and we were pleased to be awarded the interior design of the new facility. Working with architect Jon Blair of R2Design Group and the team at First Companies, the office opened its doors in April of 2021. For the year prior, Dr. Hawley had rented space nearby and developed a growing clientele. She had outgrown that space by the time of the move. 

    The inspiration for the interiors came from their logo’s overlapping circles, suggesting the variety of care the practice offers but also the pattern itself. The radius theme was applied to the check-in/check-out desk, suggesting a gentle approach with multiple points of engagement. The pattern of the circles was also developed into laser-cut screens that were used as dividers in the lobby and backlit ceiling panels in the corridor. A wallpaper that had the same pattern was used at the front desk. The color palette is simple, crisp but warm. Most of the flooring throughout is a warm luxury vinyl tile. Other areas are carpeted in organic patterns to add to the spa-like feel. 

    We also procured furnishings for the non-medical spaces, creating a hospitality feel in the patient waiting areas.  

    We were thrilled to get a text from Dr. Hawley on move-in day, “I just want you to know I walked into the office today and it is perfect! Thank you for being my voice and my vision.”

    Greenland Advanced Oral Care Brings Their Specialty Dental Services to West Michigan

    Greenland Advanced Oral Care Brings Their Specialty Dental Services to West Michigan

    Dr. R. Graham Greenland, a Prosthodontist, is passionate about caring for his patients. He brings to West Michigan training and a caring disposition to help patients that need advanced dental care, based on a variety of health issues that may include rebuilding the dental structure. 

    r.o.i. Design met Dr. Greenland and Practice Manager Laura Greenland through our relationship with First Companies. Greenland Advanced Oral Care is renting a suite at 1179 East Paris SE and it needed some “TLC” to bring the space up to today’s standards for functional finishes and to represent their brand. 

    Sensitive to the fact that this is a “startup business”, we made recommendations that could be staged over time. The first phase of changes included flooring, painting, countertops, and upgraded lighting.  

    This project resonates with our company’s vision that we are committed to designing to build our customers’ business and create a lasting experience. 

    We anticipate knowing the Greenlands for a long time and look forward to watching the practice soar.

    Animal Emergency Hospital Opens Second Location in Grand Rapids

    Animal Emergency Hospital Opens Second Location in Grand Rapids

    Animal Emergency Hospital (AEH) was busting out of their Plainfield location. With an increase in pet and animal owners in West Michigan and a need for more animal care, they set their eyes on a new and larger location.

    Working with First Companies, they selected a family convenient location near the intersection of 68th Street and US-131, where they planned for a 12,000 square foot building. Architect Michael Belisle from The Design Forum envisioned a contemporary building with a large clerestory waiting area, allowing in natural light and giving patients and their owners some space. The plan also included outdoor spaces for staff and patients in a well-appointed patio area. 

    AEH asked that their new facility replicate another animal hospital that they visited in Wichita, Kansas. While the exterior of the building looks very different the use of space and interior finishes on the inside are similar. 

     r.o.i. Design was asked by Dr. Marilyn Brink, head of staff and chief veterinarian, to look at the Wichita facility and convert the “look and feel” to the 68th Street facility, along with her personal vision for her hospital’s space. 

    That “look and feel” included: 

    • Light and bright finishes in white and gray with black trim accents 
    • Large black and white graphics of animals. 
    • Distinctive and clear signage. 
    • Highly maintainable finishes. 
    • Unlike Wichita, the lobby incorporates ceiling clouds and decorative lighting to soften the clerestory experience. 

    The r.o.i. Design team loves animals and most of us have pets. This project was heartfelt as we go home to our pets Holly, Chica, Layla, Moe, Dottie, Bob, Ronnie, and Charlie!
