Holistic approach to care
It is increasingly recognised that illness and recovery are deeply linked to our inner state of being. Whilst medicine and therapy take the lead in curing, the physical environment, architecture and place vastly influence the patient’s sense of well-being.
An ambience of natural materials, natural light, vistas into gardens and nature, beauty in proportions of spaces and details, subtle colour schemes, flow and variance in the movement space and a interconnectedness of internal and external spaces all contribute to the “ mental hygiene” of a care environment.
Whether it is a water feature in a courtyard, space analysis for sensory experiences or more principle design issues of overall composition and landscape integration, we have consulted on many projects in the care sector to create the best possible experience for patients, staff and friends.
