Successful healthcare design resolves a wide range of functional requirements, exploring opportunities to provide an uplifting environment for patients, visitors and staff. A well-designed environment makes attending a healthcare facility less stressful, improves health outcomes and increases efficiency.
PLT believes that good architecture embraces the diverse needs of healthcare facilities, based upon a full understanding of the needs of people using the spaces. Our design philosophy builds on the logic of the procedures which take place within buildings. Space planning commences at the outset of a project, encompassing the demands of the multi-use spaces from clinical through to administrative, allowing flexibility and room for growth and change. ‘Good design’ describes what arises from the intelligent and creative synthesis of many interrelated factors such as: strategic planning of healthcare provision; sustainability agendas; layout; efficiency; and the promotion of human dignity.
