The development of any nation majorly depends on the well-being of its citizens. As the cliché goes ‘Health is wealth’, The most significant luxury that one, as well as any nation, can hold is good health. A country’s economic and social growth broadly depends on the sustainability and viability of its healthcare sector. Any country around the world cannot maintain steady economic growth in the absence of an adequate healthcare system. The study tries to understand the elements, philosophies, and spatial as well as the sensorial aspects of healthcare architecture. The focus here is to decode the importance of healthcare in humans through the study of spatial design in a healthcare facility. The focus here is to understand the role of spatial elements of Architectural design in the process of healing the healthcare condition of a human in a hospital. Also, the study tries to understand the impact of various architectural elements on the psychology of a patient.
