A beautiful thought calling for architecture that will allow it to fly. We fully respected our task: to create a space for patients that need a lot of mental peace and calmness. Our main help became cooperation with a psychologist and architect who has been interested in the influence of space on the human consciousness for a long time. Before the first proposals, we analyzed and discussed various levels of intimacy in each room. It was essential to understand what each space needs and how should the patient feel there. This process was not short. However, each room was given a story and we hope that soon after the realization it will gain an atmosphere. We are looking forward to the feedback from the patients and doctors using this space.
