Comfortable and always with user integrity in mind.
Waiting is often combined with other, less passive activities. The bar, the hotel lobby or an office reception area are used for both waiting, socializing and informal meetings. That is why the Waiting segment is closely related to both Dining and Lounging.
Pure waiting rooms occur mainly in healthcare environments and their purpose and needs may vary greatly. The reasons for being there as well as the mood of the user is an important factor while planning the space. Often, the person waiting is alone or with only a single person in company. Offering a sense of security is important, as well as making interaction with others optional.
