The Providence Center
The Providence Center

The Providence Center, located on N.Main Street in Providence, RI is a multi-functional center catering to the many needs of mental health patients in the local community. With the center functioning as the largest mental health care provider in Rhode Island, the center is constantly packed to full capacity with patients whose needs range from that of housing to individual therapy, and from emergency services to community support. Our goal is to understand the day of an average patient, as they enter the center to the time of care, as they await treatment on the different floor waiting rooms of the center. My project focuses on both the existing lighting condition and circulation within the center, with the goal to create space in which patients can spend time bathed in natural light while waiting for an appointment.
