The Challenge

The Challenge

Provide Privacy in a Busy, Open Space

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

Observations

Observations

Isolated, Disconnected + Uncomfortable

Overcrowded and chaotic, conventional waiting areas can increase stress, anxiety and dissatisfaction.

  • 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

Design Insights

Comfort + Connection

  • Thoughtfully designed waiting places can support the right levels of privacy and interaction, to make these moments of transition more meaningful.
  • 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.
