Fujita Dental Centre, Koshigaya City, Saitama Pref., Japan
Dental office for town and people










Fujita Dental Centre is located in front of the station at Kita-koshigaya, typical commuter town in Saitama, and is one of the largest class dental clinics in the metropolitan area. Since there are more than 10 dental clinics in front of the station, its neighborhood is a battleground of dental clinics. In order to survive there, the dentist had to differentiate the policy and service from other clinics.

The main theme of this project is to change the values of conventional dental office. Although no one drops in dental clinics except for patients generally, we designed an approachable dental clinic like café. In contrary to the mainstream of recent medical facilities consisting of private rooms, the clinic has only one large room, which divided by the wooden partition for each patient. It makes the clinic bright and comfortable thanks to the wall-less space.

In addition, a system of participatory library called “machi library” was introduced for regional communication; citizens including patients can have opportunity to talk with the staffs by means of their favorite books on the large bookshelf.

The space has been acquired fans and utilized for a large number of events since opening. An alternative usage of dental office is there.
