DESIGN FOR PRESERVATION


WASA/STUDIO A

DESIGN FOR PRESERVATION At WASA/Studio A design is a tool to create healthcare environments that work. Design is the integrative and holistic process that shapes and gives intelligence to the wide range of challenging requirements, needs, protocols and activities that ultimately affect treatment, wellness and recovery. We operate from the belief that everyone is entitled to buildings and spaces that support their activities, inspire their actions and improve their day to day experience. This is particularly true in the design of healthcare facilities where the patient/ family experience, the compassionate delivery of treatment and the integration of state-of-the-art technology must all function as a seamless whole and where rigorous planning forms the basis of successful project outcomes. WASA/Studio A’s approach to design is to create distinctive projects which derive their quality through the intelligence and self-evident logic of their design. For us Design Excellence extends from the visible and inhabitable areas of the architects domain to the hidden and less visible systems and components such as engineering, sustainable and other specialty systems which

equally impact the building environment and operation. Excellence is required at every level and for every component that comprises a building or interior space. Our commitment to a unique Integrated Design process has been developed to a level that insures this excellence in increasingly complex buildings such as hospitals and outpatient facilities. At WASA/Studio A, healthcare design is about people — patients receiving medical care and treatment, their families, caregivers, researchers and support staff and all people who experience our built projects. Fundamental to this principal is our understanding that distinctive architecture can only be achieved through an intensive understanding of our clients’ needs, aspirations and constraints.
