Healthcare Design

We design functional spaces that improve operational efficiency and enhance wellbeing. Using the latest healing environment research, we place people at the centre of our healthcare designs.


Our collaborative approach to the design process delivers environments that are inspirational, durable and address the widest audience. Our experience ensures we effectively accommodate healthcare specific challenges including safety, infection control, budget and installation.

Working with people who were removed from the NHS challenged institutional thinking, even when we thought we did hold those thoughts, and ensured that our outcomes were exciting, destigmatising and opened peoples minds to what a mental health hospital is.

Your design principles and processes are excellent.  I would consider, without any hesitation, that Boex will be part of all further developments and projects delivered by Villicare.

The refurbishment has been appreciated by both service users and staff. Since completion the visiting room is being actively used by children. The atmosphere is very relaxed and laughter often heard.

But I have to say, when visitors see the lounge for the first time, they are often pretty stunned by it - it definitely has a 'wow' factor!
