Description Design

A room where the client feels at home due to the dynamic design and cozy corners, which stimulates the tendency to open up for a conversation.


The room also offers the opportunity to sit or stand in multiple places. Warm colours, soft fabrics and music play a major role in the design.

Music is a good topic to start a conversation with, so there is a speaker box in the room with which music can be played in the background, and posters of different artists can also be hung on the wall, which provides a conversation opener. Personally, I think this really helps with bonding and trust between the psychiatrist and client.

The different seating options in the room ensure that everyone feels comfortable and can take a seat in their own way. The materials and colors create a homely and warm atmosphere so that it does not come across as an office. This will allow the client to open up to a conversation more quickly.
