WE VISUALIZE AND DESIGN
We visualize solutions and different ways to realize them. We design approaches based on shared understanding.
Process In Action:
Maple Grove Medical Campus, Test Room
After we completed our research phase for the Maple Grove Medical Campus and understood the project’s parameters and common aims, we committed ourselves to fully understanding how future design would impact a critical community: the caregiving staff, including nurses, doctors and other specialists. To do this, we set up a test room. This allowed us to comprehensively gauge the most labor-efficient and safe design that would best serve both staff and patients. It provided us with yet another way to gather critical feedback.
The most significant gap I have encountered (with design firms) is the lack of attention to the culture of care delivery within the design process. This is where BWBR excels. Their attention to the care model as well as cultural elements are above and beyond superior in my experience than any of the others within the field.
This example is not uncommon. For other health care projects, we’ve examined how to minimize the nurses’ steps, optimize caregivers’ work environments and create comforting but efficient patient spaces. Ultimately, our designs aim to provide thoughtful, innovative solutions unique to each client’s needs.
