Abstract This paper is concerned with the design aspects of an Outpatient Facility, in terms of how to translate quality care concept, to space and interior design characteristics. The paper argues that making explicit aspects of the interior space design that are responsive to the concept of quality care is crucial for the benefit of improving existing facilities as well as future design. There is no locally drawn guideline for the design of healthcare facilities. This paper reviews foreign guidelines with the aim to consolidate key aspects of space design characteristics to support the quality care concept for outpatient facility.
