Evidence based design - Ambius creates healing environments

Evidence-based design (EBD) features a holistic review of a building’s physical space including the total sensory environment of sight, sound, touch and smell. There is a growing body of research to support the importance of evidence-based design in enhancing patients’ well-being in healthcare facilities. EBD has a healing impact on patient well-being, mood and safety and provides a restorative benefit for busy medical staffers. Ambius employs evidence-based design principles with plants, ambient scenting and art to provide healing healthcare environments.

Power of plants

The experience of being near lush greenery, whether indoors or within a patient’s line of vision outside their window provides many beneficial effects. Being around plants reduces stress and engenders a feeling of well-being in most people; a benefit that is even more acute if correct lighting is in place. Because plants have a large surface area and exchange water and gases with their surroundings, they have a unique ability to tackle many environmental problems. At Ambius, our designers specialize in selecting plants, containers and accessories to fit the space, lighting and ambience of healthcare facilities to create curative interior and exterior landscapes.

Dollars & scents

Ambient scenting is a powerful yet subtle way for a healthcare facility to create a warm and uplifting environment for patients and staff. Of all the five senses, smell is often cited as the one that triggers emotions most powerfully. And when it comes to employees, scientific studies have shown that pleasant smells can increase alertness and productivity and reduce stress. Ambius Premium Scenting doesn’t just mask odors…it neutralizes them by combining the very latest odor remediation technology with a newly-patented diffusion system. Premium Scenting is committed to air treatment practices that improve indoor air quality by adding pleasant scents or removing problem odors with a process which has no negative impact on occupant health.

Art's holistic impact in healthcare facilities

Art evokes emotions and speaks to the soul. At its best, it inspires, challenges and transforms us. Working together, Ambius designs art programs that complete the image as envisioned by the client, architect and design team and which nourish the soul of all who work, visit or reside in the healthcare facility. 

Ambius can help your healthcare organization create an EBD program that encourages patient healing, reduces patient and staff stress, improves patient and family satisfaction, increases staff effectiveness, reduces staff turnover, and consequently, reduces costs.
