When you’re dealing with at-risk children, you need to be understanding of things you’re normally not conscious of. For example, how does the interior design of a particular building affect the fragile psyche of the children who are living there? What goes into the interior design scheme of child psychology centres? Interestingly enough, there’s a lot of thought that goes into designing the inside of these buildings. First of all, a lot of children are sensitive to bright light, and installing shades that properly darken the room during the sunniest months of the year can help some children cope with sensory overstimulation. Likewise, many children do not like wide open spaces and need cordoned-off spaces where they can feel a sense of privacy and safety.

Sydney Interiors are a Sydney based commercial office fit out builder, on this exact subject, “While we normally fit out offices and commercial buildings, we’ve also worked with medical facilities,” Brandon from Sydney Interiors explained, “Designing the inside of a child psychology unit was a unique challenge for our company, and we spoke to a wide variety of experts and consulted them to find out exactly what would make the children feel more comfortable as they stayed in the facility.”

Sydney Interiors and other professional interior designers in the country work hard to meet the needs of their clients, but they went above and beyond for the children at this facility. Within a few months, the entire hospital was revitalized and given new life with smart design. We looked at photos comparing the facility before and after, and it was like night and day!
