Building for the healthcare sector – putting the human person at the centre
The functional requirements of healthcare buildings are very high; at the same time, the absolute focus must be on the human person. Pleasant surroundings should support patients and residents in the recovery process or in a self-determined life. At the same time, architecture has the potential to ease the burden on the staff if it is well-planned. And cost-effective operation must be ensured at all times.
Expertise and bespoke planning
We are able to contribute valuable practical experience when it comes to building homes for the elderly, care homes and medical facilities such as GP surgeries, health centres and rehabilitation centres. We are the ideal partner when it comes to providing advice, planning, designs and subsequent turnkey implementation. We will involve external specialists where we consider it useful. Thanks to thorough individual planning and design, we create buildings with optimised operations and of high functional and design quality where the focus is on the human person as the patient, resident, employee or visitor. Our architects are able to implement the individual requirements of the project – new buildings or renovations. This includes establishing the construction costs, working out a timetable and realising the building precisely according to specifications.
Architecture supports the healing process
We know that the built environment has a positive impact on the mental and physical well-being of the sick, the weak or the elderly, in particular, and we take important influencing factors into account, such as light, colour, orientation, layout and location. Daylight has an especially beneficial effect. On top of this, there are various hygiene provisions to be complied with, statutory requirements to be met, an environment with disabled access to be created, wheelchair use and bed transport to be taken into account and emergency treatment to be enabled where appropriate.
Living spaces for everyone
Disabled access goes beyond simply being wheelchair-friendly. Disabled access is designed to meet not just the needs of the disabled or the elderly. Regardless of age, individual disability and language everyone should be able to live with the same rights, with self-determination and independence – and this could also include young families who have to navigate flights of stairs with their buggy.
Therapy and rehabilitation centres
Following surgery or an illness many people have to adapt and start a new stage in their life with new habits and routines - usually, the focus is on physiotherapy. A good deal of discipline and perseverance is required of patients – welcoming premises which support the healing process can offer help here.
