      Richard Mazuch – Director of Design, Nightingale Associates, London
      In the last eight years, Richard Mazuch has extensively researched and developed the ‘Sense Sensitive Design’, ‘Emotional Mapping’ and the new ‘Design Prescription’ design tools. Unique to Nightingale Associates healthcare architects these design tools have been developed to enable the designers and planners to design individual spaces more skilfully and incisively, focusing on key design issues including the psychological and physiological affects of colour, light, views, smell, noise, etc on patients. Nightingale’s ground-breaking research on the healing aspects of design has been widely recognised and Richard Mazuch has assisted the Treasury Taskforce in producing key national guidelines. The emotional well-being of patients is part of a holistic approach to design which is being implemented at hospitals such as the London Clinic.
