Project Description

Chelsea and Fulham Dentist is a private family dental clinic located in South West London run by Dr Imran Sayed and Dr Dahlia Sunba.
The practice offers a wide range of dental services and treatments, including emergency dental treatments, Invisalign and cosmetic dentistry.
Dr Sayed is a member of a the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and also a Dental Phobia Certified dentist. Dr Sunba’s career has covered both general and surgical dentistry in a number of practices and district hospitals around England.

Imran and Dahlia were existing clients of ours, with Apollo Interiors previously having fitted out their two-surgery squat practice.
When the retail unit next door to the Chelsea and Fulham Dentist came up for lease, it was the perfect opportunity to expand their growing business and double their number of surgeries. Imran and Dahlia contacted us to discuss knocking through the units, fitting out the new space as well as refurbishing their existing practice.

We carried out the space plan, interior design scheme, building regulations and infrastructure design for the extended practice before starting the build.

Part of the new space was a basement that required full tanking and new ventilation to make it habitable and CQC compliant.
We converted the ground floor of the new unit into a new reception and waiting area, before installing a new surgery where the old reception area was.

Although the new unit lacked the period detailing of the existing practice, it gave us a blank canvas to work with from a design perspective. To keep the style consistent with the period property, we added bespoke panelling and a ceiling rose. The eye-catching oversized chandelier introduces a modern element which complements the high ceilings and traditional style of building, while the monochrome colour scheme looks fresh and modern.

We also changed the front door and side panels and tiled the floor outside the practice with traditional black and white tiles to further complement the period features.

The end result is a very stylish practice, which highlights the beautiful period detailing but feels modern with the new equipment and infrastructure throughout.

The fit out project for Chelsea and Fulham Dentist consisted of:

  • Extension of existing practice
  • Complete fit out of new unit
  • New reception and waiting area
  • Two additional surgeries (four in total)
  • Full mechanical and electrical installation
  • Ventilation system

The finishes:

  • Wall panelling and ceiling rose in reception
  • Feature chandelier
  • Stylish black and white colour scheme
