The right angle.

With Dr. Parrish’s great appreciation for architecture, he looked to MKM to bring a new location for Parrish Orthodontics to fruition. The site located in southwest Fort Wayne offered a design challenge, the site is triangular in shape. MKM took this as an opportunity to create a unique, modern triangular building. The triangle comes to a point facing the street corner offering excellent curb appeal for this new location. The stone-clad exterior comes to a steep point with a 20-foot overhang above a wall of floor to ceiling windows. The open interior allows visitors to have feel for the undulating form of the building. The roof is a complex form, with no truss exactly the same. The interior is warm and inviting with a mid-century modern aesthetic complemented by wood and stone finishes. Above the reception desk, a wood feature wall was created with plank flooring. Interior signage welcoming guests was cut from the trunk of a tree removed from the site to make way for the new building.
