Special needs and exceptional health situations require special attention in design.

Colors as Buildings’ Soft Skills based on scientific knowledge can support the different healthcare user groups in their respective needs. For example, they can facilitate orientation, increase the feeling of well-being or offer a variety of stimulations.

An aesthetically pleasing design with fine coordination of colours and materials, sends signals of appreciation and respect to the patients and can positively support the perception of the quality of care. (cf. "Colour in Healthcare Building" research study Helios, Buether A. & Woebker G., 2019)
