"If one room can alter how we feel, if our happiness can hang on the colour of the walls....what will happen to us in most of the places we are forced to look at and inhabit?" -Alain de Botton

A hospital is a place for healing, but why do we feel otherwise?

Imagine a hospital, In front is a long hallway, to the right is a waiting area, there you get a number and wait for your appointment, for the examination, you wait to be healed. Moments that are ignored but have the most impact emotionally because we are most aware of our surroundings.

Humans are social creatures; we react to our environment. In a bad environment and we will feel stress and anxiety; In a good environment, we will feel safe and comfort. It is important to make the users feel comfortable in a setting where we feel most vulnerable, because we are placing our trust with our health and sometimes with our lives.

In a certain degree, we all have this fear of hospitals. we have a certain feeling of associating it with disease and illness. What if hospitals are designed in a perspective of health and well-being? it's designed with a positive environment for the staff, patients and visitors. Where we can allow ourselves to be vulnerable and taken care of. Imagine that.
