The major design goal was to create a relaxing environment for patients through the use of soothing colors, soft forms, and floral wallcoverings. Another goal was to provide spaces for additional support services, including nutrition classes and support groups, as well as acupuncture and fertility counseling. Privacy and flexibility were attained by use of folding doors, sliding doors, and wall panels.
