healing spaces is an architecture studio specializing in healthcare design, founded in 2018 by Pál András Rutkai


Architecture and design have the potential to promote human health and well-being. Especially in hospitals, where the quality of spaces not only influence the treatment, but also the psychological state of a patient - a major factor in the healing process.

Medicine is no longer the only answer. Design has to be part of the solution.
