A luxury birthing center in a hospital exclusive to women, was planned in an upcoming suburb in Mumbai. In order to introduce a more humane approach to the entire birthing process, and as an extension to the new logo of Currae Healthcare where birds are flying out of an open red cross, the concept of nesting was born. A silver tree with a wooden nest and white acrylic birds flying out from the nest covers the entrance wall of the hospital. In the double height ceiling space of the lobby, white,cloud-shaped hanging lamps, specially handcrafted in fabric from Pondicherry, are surrounded by 3D birds in flight. The patient rooms have trees with shelves, some with floral garden wallpaper, to continue the theme even inside intimate spaces.
