Renal clinics are places where people wait for long periods while they receive treatment or support loved ones. To accommodate these long wait times, we created a cultural courtyard for people to connect with nature and wait, outside of airconditioned environments. The health and wellness gardens are of varying size to comfortably seat one person or small groups in the same space.
The internal courtyards also provide visual amenity and reduce the clinical and institutional feeling of the clinic. The large staff courtyard provides a passive meeting and relaxation space for care givers as a respite from work and external workspace.
