A space for passionate care
Over the last 30 years, these passionate caregivers have become the largest nonprofit hospice program in their region. In addition to being home to executives, support staff, and counsellors, this location is also a base for a large staff of nurses that work with patients in the field. Creating a calm, supportive space was essential for visitors and staff.
Early on, they discovered all the structural support came from the outside walls. That gave them absolute freedom to gut the building and redesign everything. It was time for a more efficient and user-friendly office, but they didn’t want to break the bank. Putting resources into patient care was top priority. Using videogame-inspired ICE® software, designers created a full 3D version of the space. In only 48 hours the hospice knew exactly what their space could be.
Opening up the environment brightened the space with natural light. It also gave staff line of sight to the amazing redwood trees outside. A new meeting room with embedded technology offered a perfect training area. The open concept was beautiful, but it was also challenging. Given the space would be used for grief counselling, speech privacy was key. DIRTT walls had enough insulation to block most of the noise. Using sound masking technology obscured voices coming through counselling room windows. In the end, they checked everything off their wish list. This allowed Hospice of Santa Cruz County to focus on their precious work instead of the space they were doing it in.
