The International Interior Design Association (IIDA) has announced the winners of its 2014 Healthcare Interior Design Competition. The competition honors and celebrates outstanding originality and excellence in the design and furnishings of healthcare interior spaces.
This year, a jury of distinguished design professionals awarded Best of Competition honors to Perkins + Will New York for their project, Preston Robert Tisch Center for Men’s Health. One of a series of outpatient centers of New York University’s Langone Medical Center in New York City, Perkins + Will New York’s project also earned the Best of Category prize for Ambulatory Care Centers – Medical Practice Suites.
“This year’s submissions demonstrated a strong commitment to form following function that is essential in healthcare Interior Design,” commented IIDA Executive Vice President and CEO Cheryl S. Durst, Hon. FIIDA, LEED AP. “Each of the entries displayed an acute awareness of patient-centered design through the integration of spaces, use of light, and selection of textures to create environments that promote healing and wellness. Effective healthcare Interior Design has the power to positively affect a patient’s quality of care and patient experience.” “Tailored and textural. Masculine yet soothing. It was beautifully designed,” stated jury member Carol Doering, Director of Healthcare Services, IA Interior Architects. Gabel elaborated on the center’s reserved aesthetic, noting its wide male demographic appeal. “The character of the clinic is sophisticated, restrained, and highly consistent throughout. Visual textures from menswear and newsprint, pops of color, and streamlined wood and metal details create an environment that appeals to a full age range of male clientele.”
