This book compiles contemporary designs worldwide that break through the stereotype of doctors’ practices as cold and often stressful environments. All projects aim at balancing medical technology and functionality with the need to create a welcoming and comfortable environment for the patients, visitors and staff. Apart from general practitioner’s offices, those of dentists and a wide variety of specialists are also presented. The solutions range from practice design in an existing building to entirely new buildings for one or more offices. Doctors’ Practices demonstrates today’s architectural responses to the complex demands of healthcare – a very fast-developing field.
