Bicon Dental Implants, Boston, MA

The Bicon Building is located near the Forest Hills Cemetery in the largely-residential Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston.  It serves three distinct purposes: educational facilities for dentists from all over the world, corporate offices for Bicon Dental Implants, and professional offices for the Implant Dentistry Centre. Although the building appears to be entirely new, its present appearance is the result of enlarging and renovating a non-descript office building dating from 1963. A third story, a stair and elevator tower, and a full basement were added; the interior was reconfigured; and the exterior was refaced, using waterstruck brick with cast stone trim. Plans to add a rooftop terrace and pavilion are now in progress. (Sullivan Buckingham Architects)
