Welkom in de Zorg

12 May 2014

welkom in de zorg_300X200A hospital can be a place of suffering and confrontation, a place where emotions are often tucked away. The emergence of the Healing Environment contributed to more caring and stimulating healthcare institutions, with design being one of the key factors of this philosophy. But where do we go from here? How can an environment be more emphatic to its users?



With a focus on emotional connection and trust, Design Director and partner, Francesco Messori, will define the design characteristics of tomorrow’s healthcare facilities during a 30 minutes’ presentation. Please join us at 15:00 o’clock on Wednesday the 14th of May, in theatre ‘Water’ at the Jaarbeurs Utrecht. Don’t forget to register first by clicking this link. Hopefully we will see you there!

A comprehensive report of this day is published last April in this year’s third edition of the magazine. According to ‘de Architect’, Google Amsterdam turned out to be a ‘cheerful urban neighborhood’ with a typical Dutch twist to it. A big compliment we think!

DKF 2014 Congress Munich

1 April 2014

healingoffices_websiteCoen van Dijck, Managing Director and partner of D/DOCK, is one of the speakers of this years DKF congress in Munich on the 1st of April. During his presentation, Coen will share D/DOCK’s vision on the dealing room of the future. How can we design high stress work environments in such a way that the level of stress reduces, energy will increase and concentration will be promoted?

Coen will introduce the audience to our Healing Offices concept with different design typologies where mobility, flexibility and adaptability are key. Variety in ceiling heights, light intensity, color and temperature are crucial elements as well as a dedicated food plans and enough exercise. Adopting this design approach will eventually lead to a lower absenteeism and a higher productivity.
