This project focused on the psychology and physical use of each space by the patients and staff at a physical therapy rehabilitation center. The design concept for this project focused on Movement, Order, Composition, Stimulation and Community.
The physical therapy space is an open space that allows for the nursing staff and patients to work together. The space is situated in front of an exterior garden which allows for views to the garden and sunlight to flood the space; this allows for the psychology use of nature in the acceleration process in rehabilitation in a patient.
