Studio Karhard, Berghain’s designers go to Urban Dentist

March 30, 2019

The Urban Dentist space was designed by architectural firm Studio Karhard, which designed the Berghain in Berlin, the world’s most famous nightclub. It’s a sleek place that, according to its creators, invites patients to be “relaxed and fearless.”

“We avoided typical materials like glossy white surfaces and used colorful materials and dark colors to create a warm and friendly atmosphere,” Studio Karhard’s cofounder Alexandra Erhard said.

 

 

When the clients–dentists Mohammed Alef , Sang-ji Kim, and Venelina Dimitrov–approached Studio Karhard with the proposal to design a new 3,875-square-foot space, Erhard and her partner Thomas Karsten came up with a concept that included some features the studio normally employs in club design: mirrors, ambient lighting, rough materials.

 

Programmable lighting, visible through each private room’s backlit glass panels, keeps the look and feel of the atmosphere in flux, and is meant to have a calming effect.

The treatment rooms look more traditional, but are still surprisingly stylish: they feature customized furniture with brass framing, powder pink linoleum, and a colorful tabletop made of natural stone terrazzo.

 

Mirrors, ambient lighting, and rough materials—notably the dark terrazzo reception desk—balance luxe details with a rough-around-the-edges vibe.

It’s so cool, you want to party there: add the music, some clinical-level drugs and it won’t feel that much different from the actual Berghain.

Plus, this time they will actually let you in!!!

 

Located in a 3,875-square-foot space in Berlin’s Friedrichshain neighborhood, the Urban Dentist takes visual cues from the renowned techno mecca, which occupies a gargantuan building that used to be a power plant.
