Client’s Vision

To create one of its kind Bone Marrow Transplant Facility in Mumbai. The management and Dr’s team at Fortis Mulund wanted to make this facility in a way that is patient centric. As BMT patients have a longer isolation periods and low immunity, maintaining sterile environment in the room was of utmost importance. Hence the client wanted us to design spaces that are sterile, easy to maintain and yet aesthetically appealing to patients as they would be isolated for long period of time.

Our Approach for Executing the Project

  • Stage wise planning and designing of the project was carried out after discussing and finalizing with management, as well as doctors team so that all thoughts and ideas could be reviewed before incorporating in the design.
  • All the technical and Functional aspects were considered while designing, keeping in mind the physical care needed for a BMT Patient.
  • The interiors were designed in such a way that it helps to soothe the patient and as well as create interest during the long hours of isolation. Very minute details were considered to enhance the visual appeal and ambience of the room.

 Salient Features of This Project

  • Isolation Rooms were designed with careful planning and detailing. In terms of sterility factors like, air pressure, anti-bacterial / antifungal materials, chamfered edges were installed for ease of maintenance, dust free space and barrier free movement.
  • The interiors were designed tastefully via adding a dash of colours through antibacterial paint and laminates, which added a soothing and relaxing feel to the space.
