Modern Dentist Office? - Minami-Nagano Dental Clinic & Residence by HIROKI TANABE

This is a complex of a dental clinic and a dentist’s residence, located in the suburbs of Nagano, Japan, in a beautiful farm village surrounded by rice fields and peach orchards. A concrete plate 300 millimeters thick forms zigzag structure, which makes up three shells and two open courtyards. As well as lying in alternate shifts, they face each other across the plate. Each shell has different functions inside, residence, clinic and waiting lounge. In each courtyard two glass boxes are set and used as pathways and entry halls between two adjacent shells.
