Designing for neuroscience facilities combines the need to understand the latest highly specialist advances in surgery and imaging with an ability to create uplifting and reassuring spaces within which rehabilitation and healing can take place.
JCA has worked with clinicians and managers at one of the leading centres in the UK to bring existing facilities up to current standards for patient care and adapt existing spaces for emerging technologies.
In this specialist area surgery, imaging and robotics are converging and require highly specialised and customised solutions. We have worked closely with the providers of intra-operative systems and clinicians to develop design solutions which incorporate this technology within a theatre suite to provide an uncluttered, safe and pleasant work place.
We have also designed the more patient centred facilities for neurological medicine. These include a major rehabilitation centre for patients who are recovering from brain or spine injuries and illnesses as well as various outpatient facilities including pain management units and neurophysiology suites.
These solutions encourage patient independence which we believe to be a critical factor on the path to recovery. They also embody our general design philosophy to use shallow floorplans that can provide access to gardens and terraces and high levels of natural light.
