The empathic room: the hospital wellness of the future

We have recently learned the details of a very interesting project by the team of architects from Barcelona PMMT Arquitectura. Specifically, the future Nou Hospital Evangèlic (NHE) social-health centre they are working on will have a new model of double room in the hospitalisation units that improves the well-being of patients: the PMMT Comfort Room, the Empathic Room.

In this way, an empathic hospital room has been designed, seeking to reduce the possibilities of conflict between patient-partners. A space that is perceived as a single room and, at the same time, encourages social interaction.

In this “friendly” room, the patient in the bed furthest away from the window enjoys natural light, has his or her own wardrobe and a curved curtain provides more privacy.
