The ground breaking for the new home for Spodak Dental Group took place on Friday, November 9. The building design by Michael Singer Studios and Richard A Jones Architects will be a LEED certified project. Most great projects are the result of a great client; Dr. Spodak has taken great pains to make sure that the setting for his new dental office benefits and improves health of clients, staff and the environment.
A body of research shows that exposure to nature reduces stress and improves outcomes in healthcare settings. To that end, the building design allows views of large areas of native plants that attract birds and butterflies, a collection of tropical plants that provide interesting colors, textures and fragrances and an edible garden. The plan carefully considers the guidance of “right plant right place” ensuring that plant types are given the appropriate microclimate conditions in order to thrive.
