Break + Lounge
More than Coffee. Taking inspiration from communal spaces in the workplace, lounges can become a space for collaboration and be an essential part of the healthcare workplace, be the buzzing hub of the hospital. Where staff share ideas, information, and issues, stay up on the latest practices, bond with their peers—ultimately resulting in better, more efficient care. Practically speaking, medical professionals need space where they can make private phone calls, or have one-on-one conversations. Shifts can be long and stressful, so the lounge needs to also be a space for decompression and contemplation.
