The Challenge

Neighbor

PROVIDE PRIVACY IN A BUSY, OPEN SPACE

While waiting in healthcare environments, most people seek separation from strangers and closeness to family. Some like the stimulation of TV, while others prefer a quieter setting to focus on a task or read.

Observations

ISOLATED, DISCONNECTED + UNCOMFORTABLE

  • Valuable time is wasted as people sit, wait and read in what feels like a holding pattern.
  • Family members are disconnected, surrounded by strangers and limited in their ability to interact with and support each other.
  • Filled with rows of uncomfortable armchairs, waiting rooms are often chaotic and unsettling.

Design Insights

COMFORT + CONNECTION

  • By thoughtfully defining a space, you can create places for visiting families to connect and for individuals to reflect, with just the right amount of privacy and separation from strangers.
  • A range of spaces within a space accommodate visitors of different sizes and needs.
  • Modularity means healthcare organizations can create custom configurations and repurpose over time.
