HEALTHCARE DESIGN BASICS An approachable and robust treatment of designing and planning spaces for use in healthcare settings

In Healthcare Design Basics, a team of distinguished interior architecture practitioners and educators delivers an up-to-date text covering the critical aspects of healthcare design, preparing students for a specialty rapidly growing in importance and size. The book adopts an approach designed to crystalize the most important elements of broad range of ambulatory facilities for healthcare design students and new professionals in a clear, concise, and approachable way.

The authors combine a broad overview of numerous ambulatory healthcare typologies with exercises that allow students to prepare detailed plans for many of the most commonly used rooms and typologies in the healthcare industry, thus preparing them for the demands of professional positions.

The book also includes:



Step by step studio guidance outlining the basic design elements required for a wide range of ambulatory healthcare facilities and rooms
Comprehensive explorations of the demands of new and improved healthcare facilities that meet the needs of an aging population
Practical discussions of the space planning challenges involved in designing rooms and facilities for use during public health crises, including pandemics
Dozens of full-color images that illustrate and highlight important concepts, examples, and design solutions

Written for students of interior design, architecture, and emerging professionals, Healthcare Design Basics also benefits professionals tasked with the initial planning and design of ambulatory facilities, and other healthcare settings.
