DUKE INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE

DUKE UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER

Durham, North Carolina

The Duke Integrative Medicine center unites traditional and alternative medicine in a holistic endeavor for the mind, body, and spirit. Whereas traditional clinical settings often evoke negative feelings of sterility and coolness, we created a warm, welcoming environment by interweaving the natural and the man-made. Our design strategy – 'human-centered healthcare design' – reduces stress through environmental design, improving patient healthcare, staff performance, and community involvement.
