As an interior designer, I am interested in how people function within their spaces and the integration of the outdoors with the interior. Inspired by my mother’s work as a breastfeeding counselor and my interest in the treatment of childbirth and childcare, I designed a birthing center to combat the overly medicalized approach to childbirth in the US. Throughout my project, I focused on exploring the concept of healing architecture and the effects of natural healing through design. The incorporation of the existing courtyard as a central point of my design required me to explore landscape design and the possibilities of intertwining the interior with the exterior. Through the use of architecture, I designed an atrium over the existing buildings and courtyard to create a year-round, temperature-controlled oasis. The purpose of my design was to make the users as comfortable and secure as possible, throughout their journey of natural childbirth.
