British Columbia Teck Acute Cancer Care HDR Health


Every healthcare environment should be as unique as its context. That’s why we embrace a deep understanding of our clients’ missions and then design with empathy for patient, family, and staff experience. We’re not a traditional healthcare architecture practice. Our DNA is diverse and collaborative. Our integrated staff advances care delivery that promotes health and well-being on a global scale and in local communities.

Shaping the Future of Health Delivery

We begin by using design thinking to help clients imagine their future. Then we explore innovative opportunities to shape it. We use predictive analytics to help clients make sound decisions based on data. And our multidisciplinary experts use deep knowledge and precedents for high impact process improvement and planning solutions to reduce operating costs and dramatically improve health outcomes.

Designing Human-Centred Experiences

Our designers appreciate the nuances of delivering world-class health experiences that solve user needs. We’ve led efforts to reimagine the future of ambulatory care. We defined new standards of excellence for a public academic health system. We conceived, planned and designed the first-ever translational research hospital in the world.

We’re passionate about creating restorative spaces that champion human-centred design in projects around the world.  We transform simple, strong ideas into lasting and meaningful building concepts that reinforce our clients’ commitments to compassionate care.

Pandemic Response Strategies

Healthcare professionals are on the frontlines caring for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we're here to help. We've assembled a task force of global healthcare design experts and can provide immediate assistance.
