Alexei Mizin, DMD
Fitting all of Dr. Mizin’s requirements into this modestly sized 1840 sf suite in a professional office building in Southern California required the careful fitting of all of the parts, like a jigsaw puzzle. For example, the greeting area of the reception desk was designed with a wall at a 45 degree angle to access a good view of the reception room while maintain the functionality of the adjacent back/office consultation space. Also, the centrally located crash cart shared the same footprint as the capture station and the medical gas closet was carved out of the sterilization area. Sliding glass patio doors were used for better visibility into the surgery suites and to allow natural light to fill the hallway and adjacent spaces. The ceiling of the reception room was designed with a welcoming barrel vault lit with cove lighting.
