Inclusive design

 

Inclusion for everyone and the right to the adequate housing with

dignity and privacy for all. 

Designing spaces based on human needs adequate to function, leaving no one behind. 

We believe that everyone deserves an adequate standard of living

 

Mental healthcare facilities & safety

 

Design of mental health facilities plays a crucial role in safety and well-being of inpatients as well as therapeutic outcome.

A proper physical environment is also ensuring safety and reduces sentinel events number including suicide attempts. 

The design process of built environment of mental health facilities is governed by different therapeutic priorities and requires implementation of different methods of care taking and guarding patients than in other hospitals as well as dedicated design solutions.

Shaping built environment of mental health facilities is a process that requires predominantly adaptation of introduced solutions to particular patterns of patient behaviour and specific procedures

Next to patient outcomes and the quality of therapy, architecture is the most visible and representative part of healthcare system. Both outcomes and the quality of treatment and therapy are strongly dependent on the quality of built environment.

Architecture, together with urban design, represents a system of interconnected factors that shape its form, determine materials, the design of functional arrangement and spatial relations both in micro and macro scale.

Users are affected by stressors generated by built environment as well as by urban design.

Both exert a significant impact on health and well being. Inadequate spatial relations and low quality of built environment may trigger numerous stressors and reflect in users’ health, both in their somatic conditions as well as mental health problems.
