Healthcare practices demand a lot from their buildings. Facilities need to be dynamic, keeping up with the fast paced world of medicine, while providing a healthy environment for both the patient and the provider. Jason Barry has dedicated his career to the design of user-focused spaces and worked closely with healthcare providers to understand the unique facility type.
Biophilic design concepts create an opportunity to drastically improve the patient experience through architectural and interior design. Research continues to explore the health and happiness benefits of design which bridges the gap between the built and the natural world - especially the impact our environment makes on the healing process. In order to improve the patient experience, we need only look to our very nature as human beings.
This morning, we are excited to announce the launch of our new, simplified KMB architects logo. Our firm has grown much over the past few years and we believe it’s time for a change.
We wanted to make sure the core of our brand remained the same, while at the same time reflecting the firm that we are today. We looked to the history of our firm for inspiration - incorporating themes from different logo designs throughout the growth and development of the firm. The culminating design is both a step forward in the evolution of the KMB architects brand, and a simplified design that takes us back to our firms roots.
Through Sharla’s pursuit of Interior Design, she has begun to carve out a space in the design community to share, explore, and apply her perspective. Now, Sharla joins the KMB architects’ Team. Get to know more about her here.
Just as every project is different, every designer has a different approach to the same problem. Each member of our team draws from their unique experience and skills to create beautiful solutions. We wanted to share these experiences with you so that you may better understand our process - KMB’s Take.
