Comparing Heart Spaces

Date posted: July 12, 2017

Rachel Shaw is speaking at an Associated Construction Network event on Thursday 20 July, entitled ‘Comparing Heart Spaces in student accommodation, retirement homes & care homes’. In healthcare, residential and education schemes, the heart or hub of a building can be an inspiring space; the main ‘place for people’. However keeping it adaptable and flexible to allow for future changes and ensuring that the space doesn’t become under utilised or lifeless can be a challenge…

The event will also discuss:

    • How do we define the heart space?
    • What makes for a good heart space?
    • What are the pitfalls to avoid?
    • How do we keep it flexible & adaptable to cope with change?
    • How are they similar/different in education, residential & healthcare buildings?
