Healing Centered Design

All innovation is basically derived from one thing: a question. A question that provokes thought and engages the imagination. One that pushes us to progress; to create new and smarter solutions. One that challenges convention, especially in unconventional times. With 70 years of award-winning design experience, we still approach each new project with one simple, yet powerful question: ‘What if?’ Innovation Begins with a Question

There is a purpose of design that goes beyond brick and mortar, where the end product is not merely a building, but rather a learned child, a healed patient, or a service of community and culture. All creative efforts should hold this idea in mind, for great architecture must answer this larger cause. Designing for Our Client’s Client

Much has changed. Much hasn’t. In today’s economy, everyone is talking about doing more with less. About smarter space, not necessarily more space. Adaptive, multi-functional space that moves with your needs. If they’re not, they should be—for there is an economy to such innovation. At HMC, we’ve always approached architecture this way—some things don’t change.

All convention was once unconventional. Today’s conventional wisdom was yesterday’s innovation. As architects, we work to stretch the thinking of the day, providing new benefits and paths for our clients to realize their goals. In business, you really have only two basic choices: lead or follow. We like to think we’re leading tomorrow’s convention.

Designing how patients and process connect. Master planning, space planning, workflow modeling, and evidence-based design all contribute to an increase in quality of patient care, a decrease in wait times and related stress, and an improved overall healthcare experience. This efficiency of design also optimizes working conditions for the healthcare providers, directly contributing to patient comfort and safety.

Lean design doesn’t mean less design. In fact, quite the opposite is true. It connects powerful and innovative ideas and optimal processes through architecture. It connects form to function. Today to tomorrow. Some say ‘less is more,’ we say ‘lean is more.’

Good design is clear thinking made visual. Whether you envision an entirely new facility or new uses for existing ones, we work to inspire creative design potentials for your built environment. Responsive and responsible designs are born from such clarity. And while there may be more than one solution—one so-called right answer, we find there is ultimately one best fit.

We’re putting the evidence in evidence-based design. Teaming with the University of California, San Diego, we’re developing software and technology that objectively measures the human response as individuals interact within full-scale, 3D, virtual reality building models. This groundbreaking research demonstrates the relationship and connection between an individual and their surroundings and provides us with an opportunity to elevate the architectural experience.

(ROI) Return on Innovation ROI typically stands for return on investment. We feel it stands for return on innovation—from our perspective, innovation is an investment. And we think our clients feel the same way too. Innovating design, operations, process, sustainability, finance, development, and branding can pay significant dividends. Another way we’re thinking beyond architecture.

Healing Centered Design To us, the success of a project goes beyond aesthetics. We understand the connection between the environment and a patient’s ability to heal. We know from research that access to natural light, colors reflective of what nature provides us, acoustic sensitivity, and the care model have a real impact on patient outcomes and length of stay. Using these components we strive to create facilities that meet your current needs, accommodate tomorrow’s growth, augment the way you provide health services, and inspire your patients and their families to wellness.
