Description Design

The dynamic space. In the modern healthcare environment, dynamic space is central to me as a versatile tool. What intrigues me about this concept is that the client, together with the practitioner, is given control over the design of the room, where both formal


and informal positions are possible. It's not just about a functional space; it is a place where the client's emotions become visible and where they are expressed.

The interesting aspect of this space is that it not only has a functional role, but also acts as a canvas. It provides a platform on which emotions and feelings manifest themselves, without having to be explicitly expressed. By subtly playing with the shifting elements in the space, the user can determine his own visibility in a non-verbal way and possibly express feelings.

This is particularly useful in situations where feelings of insecurity and shame play a significant role. The concept of the dynamic space is more than just a location; it is evolving into an instrument that enriches the healthcare experience. Here the space not only takes on meaning as a physical element, but transforms into a platform on which emotions can be subtly shown, without the need for words to be expressed.
