Lichauco Designs LoveYourself Anglo Client Confidentiality Drives Architecture
Client confidentiality remains at the forefront of the architectural design for the soon-to-open LoveYourself Anglo on Shaw Boulevard in Mandaluyong.
Renowned architect Dan Lichauco, together with his team at the Archion Achitects, has ensured that those who will undergo HIV screening at the new center will be accorded the privacy due them.
As Lichauco puts it, paramount to the clients’ need for counseling and testing is the guarantee that the procedure shall remain confidential.
Along with this, he also puts forth that LoveYourself Anglo will stay true in fostering a welcoming and supportive environment for everyone who ventures into its confines.
Those requisites for spatial design may be more challenging than usual but not for Lichauco, whose architectural works include major hospital projects like The Medical City, The Asian Hospital and Medical Center, and Ospital ng Makati.
“Since we do a lot of healthcare projects, we felt that we could share our learning and experience in helping the community,” Lichauco said.
The layout for LoveYourself Anglo showcases both a public and a private space that shall cater to specific processes of the HIV screening. Six counseling rooms and a doctor’s exam room are also slated to open in the new center.
Lichauco explains that the Love Yourself Anglo design is consistent with his previous projects where considerations involve process flows for healthcare and steering clear of medical cross contamination.
Like the architect, LoveYourself aims to see the fruition of a new center that will open its doors to the growing audience of the organization.
A launch ceremony for Love Yourself Anglo will be held on June 22, 2014 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. to be attended by key personalities from the Department of Health, non-governmental organizations involved in HIV advocacy, and peer educators and counselors of Love Yourself. The free HIV testing and counseling services will be offered to the public starting June 25, 2014 from 12:00 nn – 7:00 p.m.
