Fraser Woodbury is an innovative clinic for the treatment of children with special needs. The challenge was balancing three goals – supporting sensory-sensitive children and their families, creating a beautiful environment, and meeting durability requirements.
The experience of each user (children receiving treatment, caregivers, siblings, therapists and staff) is elevated through specific approaches creating a consistent, sensory sensitive environment. Evidence-based design informed strategies for daylighting, lighting, acoustics, wayfinding, thermal comfort and indoor air quality, enhancing treatment outcomes for children and their families.
