Healthcare spaces should convey comfort, wellness, and a sense of confidence. Helping people get well begins with making them feel comfortable, inspired, and secure. Calming colors, biophilia, intuitive wayfinding, and space division are all contributing factors to a peaceful environment.

The pandemic pushed everyone out of their comfort zones, forcing health systems to rethink the waiting experience. Smaller, confined waiting spaces offer security, privacy and comfort while reinforcing safe social distancing practices.

Private waiting areas with sensory touches can transform a space to be more engaging, inspiring, and secure for families and guests to gather. They provide designers an opportunity to include experiential elements such as plants and biophilia.

These small waiting zones offer security and a chance to meet a variety of human needs. The idea is that designers can create sensory touchpoints that provide calm environments and inspire guests, patients, and caregivers alike.

While some guests may be looking for more security and privacy, others enjoy the natural flow of the environment with easy access to passing caregivers. This is more open to public spaces, with plenty of space for connection or interaction. After all, part of creating great healthcare environments means designing for each individual.

Knack wins Gold for the Nightingale Awards 2021

​​​​The Nightingale Awards, the industry’s leading program to recognize products related to the healthcare built environment, are named for Florence Nightingale, a tireless advocate for the improvement of care and conditions in military and civilian hospitals in the 1800s. The judging criteria for the awards is the product’s contribution to a healing environment along with aesthetics and innovation; contribution or solution for clinical or operational outcomes; durability, functionality, and quality; environmental sustainability; industry certifications and standards; and list price. To evaluate the entries, jurors visited exhibitors’ booths before the Healthcare Design Expo opened to examine the products, hear the story of their design and development, and ask questions.
