Every decision that is made in the design of an interior is often associated with a larger concept. For example, a ski lodge’s lobby may be designed with a rustic concept in mind while an oceanfront hotel’s lobby may be designed to reflect an aquatic concept. Our Ambius colleagues in the Netherlands have taken the idea one step further by taking a more conceptual approach to enhancing interiors.
Instead of focusing on specific services for clients, Ambius has begun to approach healthcare facilities in the Netherlands with a multifaceted “healing” concept that evokes a spirit of health and wellness. It is vitally important for hospitals and nursing homes to instill a sense of healthiness in their buildings. People who frequent medical facilities are often sick and not feeling 100%. By communicating a design idea around a concept of health, wellness, and sustainability, clients in the healthcare industry can easily understand how Ambius can enhance their interiors on multiple levels.
Hospitals can a reinforce a healing concept throughout their facility by purifying the air with interior plants, uplifting moods with scenting systems and adorning walls with art work featuring nature scenes.
Ambius has also introduced a new service in the Netherlands called open ceilings which are illuminated photo panels that fit into a pattern of a standard ceiling while depicting an image of a beautiful sky or blossoming overhanging branches. As is the case with interior landscaping, open ceilings help buildings reestablish a connection with nature while indoors.
“By designing their facilities with a healing concept, healthcare professionals can create an experience in their waiting areas and lobbies that help patients feel comfortable, relaxed and free of stress even when they are ill,” said Rob Van Dyk, Ambius Marketing Manager Benelux (Netherlands & Belgium).
