One of the most common things that you can expect to hear in any health care facility is patients stating that they cannot wait to be back in their own home. There is no question that a health complication is something that everyone wants to overcome as quickly as possible, but it’s also true that health care environments are often designed in a manner to serve a purpose and afford space, as opposed to creating an atmosphere that comforts.
Health architects in Melbourne are in increasing demand, however, since there is an appreciation for the power that great design and building can have on both those in care and their caregivers. At BY Projects Architecture, we are a team of green architects that have thirty years of experience both practising as architects and with regards to direct building experience.
We understand that certain functions must be carried out at any healthcare facility and while it is important to make this possible, we know that there are creative solutions available to improve the sense of comfort, welcome and the overall aesthetics of any space. Our collaborative approach to architecture ensures that each client we work with is served in full with his or her needs at the heart of every decision that we make.
The world is slowly but surely embracing environmental programmes that will lead to sustainable changes. As the leading sustainable architects, we already lead the way in this regard and are primarily focused on achieving sustainability on each project that we undertake.
Architecture can play a huge role in delivering sustainable buildings through the use of the correct materials. There are, of course, plenty of decision that must be made with regards to cleanliness and maintaining high standards of hygiene. A clean and sterile environment is essential, and we are very skilled in choosing materials that reduce the potential for contaminants and that are easy to maintain.
As health architects serving Melbourne, we have spoken with many developers and we have engaged with communities to determine what their needs are as we begin to design and plan. Comfort is a key part of creating an environment that feels more like a home, rather than a sterile and unwelcoming medical unit. Patients and those requiring assistance should also be able to find beauty in these places since it is beneficial to their mental wellbeing and can inspire hope.
Any healthcare facility is essentially public space, so it is important to consider the way that communal areas are designed to promote socialising, work and even learning, depending on the nature of the facility. It is also worth thinking about how those who are employed these places engage with their daily environment. Providing them with comforts and thoughtful features can boost morale and improve their sense of job satisfaction.
There are plenty of ways that embracing a new approach and design to a healthcare facility can result in positive change. Simple decisions and smart solutions can make a huge difference in the lives of those that visit and stay at any healthcare facility, so it is essential to consider how your project could be improved to achieve more through creative design and consultation.
