The space is divided by plasterboard forms in blue and brown, and furnished with polyurethane foam chairs.
A wall that divides the waiting area from one of the examination rooms can be rotated out of the way, allowing the space to be used as a medical auditorium.

The information below is from the architects:
The centre for dentistry is situated in a medical center in Hamburg St. Georg, close to Hamburg's lively downtown.
Free standing core elements divide the open space into different programmatic zones. These elements host independent workstations, an x-ray room and different other medical facilities.
One rotating element next to the waiting area transforms a closed examination room into a stage for a medical auditorium.
Sloped tops of the cores contain indirect lighting with integrated luminous ceilings.
The color scheme in blue and brown shades moves freely from floor to wall to ceiling and gives the illusion of an endless space continuum.
