American Dental Professionals - Wauwatosa, WI

Thrive Architects working in partnership with our dental consultant and construction team; assisted in the design of new offices for American Dental Professionals and Dr. Chuan Li.  The design basis for this 6 chair dental practice was to provide a comfortable and convenient office with the latest state of the art equipment.  We designed the space with the idea that it would be set apart from other traditional dental practices by providing a hot beverage center and tech educational station in the lobby.  The decor of the space is exceptional and no detail was overlooked.  Treatment rooms are all located along the exterior walls and offer amazing views of the city.  Inclusion of a private treatment room offers the ability to serve patients that may otherwise be difficult to serve in a traditional open office setting.  You can visit American Dental Professionals website to learn more

Elmbrook Church Interior Remodel

Elmbrook Church is a non-denominational congregation with years of growth and multiple campus additions.  These various additions fit the growing needs of the congregation at the time but created a sprawling effect today which makes the campus challenging to navigate especially for new visitors.  The goal of this interior alteration is to create various navigation elements and gathering centers throughout the church campus to improve campus navigation.  These centers will have a wide range of functions; such as information kiosks, after service socializing spaces, new visitor areas and a children check-in zone.

This is a sneak peek of the proposed designs for various areas throughout the campus.
