2019 IIDA Student Design Competition: Ambulatory Surgery Center
Студенческий конкурс проводится Международной ассоциацией дизайнеров интерьера. Участникам предстоит оформить помещения амбулаторного хирургического центра, который планируется построить в американском городе Шарлотт. Необходимо подумать не только о комфорте посетителей медучреждения, но и о повышении эффективности работы врачей – дизайн должен способствовать продуктивной деятельности.
The 2019 IIDA Student Design Competition (SDC) celebrates the talent and fresh design ideas of interior design students throughout the world who are currently enrolled in an interior design program or institution. The competition provides emerging professionals the opportunity to showcase their work and gain exposure in the interior design industry.
A physicians group that specializes in gastroenterology, gynecology, orthopedics, and urology, along with a local health system, will be constructing an ambulatory surgery center (ASC) in Charlotte, North Carolina. This multi-specialty ASC will support two (2) functions — a clinic that will perform examinations and consultations as well as a surgery center.
According to Ambulatory Surgery Center Association’s “ASCs: A Positive Trend in Health Care,” the ASC setting allows physicians to perform many specialized and necessary tasks. Physicians can schedule procedures more conveniently, assemble teams of specifically trained and highly skilled staff, ensure that the equipment and supplies in use are best suited to their techniques, and design facilities tailored to their specialties and the specific needs of their patients.
The 2019 IIDA Student Design Competition invites you to design several critical areas within a new ASC being constructed. The design should promote and allow the physicians, along with the health system, to increase efficiency and create a seamless patient experience through architecture and thoughtful design. A spa-like feel and amenities seen in hospitality are instrumental in creating a sense of calmness and well-being. The new facility should be flexible and allow for growth due to the changing landscape of healthcare from volume-based care to value-based care.
Submissions should feature a majority (50 percent or more) of pieces from the OFS and Carolinas portfolio. Consider healthcare solutions from these key collections, as well as many others in the OFS and Carolina portfolios: Mile Marker, Modern Amenity, Hug, and Element. Keep in mind that OFS and Carolina, in addition to its standard products, consistently provides clients with custom and special orders and there would be no better place than the ASC to take advantage of those capabilities. Participants are also encouraged to use pieces from other manufacturers when creating their design solutions.
Healthcare facilities, such as this new ASC, should take into consideration ADA standards for accessible design, HIPPA Privacy Rules, and make seating accommodations for the bariatric population or parents with small children.
