The IIDA revealed winners of its 2016 Healthcare Interior Design Competition, which recognizes outstanding design of healthcare interiors. The competition examines three overarching categories—ambulatory care centers, hospitals, and senior living.
“Now more than ever, designers play a critical role in the healthcare industry, providing evidence-based solutions that contribute to positive patient outcomes, as well as the well-being of caregivers and healthcare workers,” said IIDA executive vice president and CEO Cheryl Durst, a 2016 Interior Design Hall of Fame inductee (special leadership award). “This year’s winning submissions showcase exceptional healthcare design, with an eye toward form, materiality, function, and innovation that is creating positive, healing environments."
This year’s jury consisted of Michelle Clark, senior associate at Rees Associates; Suzen L. Heeley, executive director of design and construction at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center; and Lisa Herriott, IIDA, interior designer and project manager at UW Medicine | Harborview Medical Center.
The Best in Competition winner will be announced at the Healthcare Design Expo and Conference on November 13 in Houston, Texas.
