Celebrating World Interiors Day With A Purpose
World Interiors Day (WID) 2020 is celebrated across the globe today, May 23rd of 2020. It is no secret that the whole world is affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Private sectors and big businesses in the country have been active in extending aid to our countrymen as we continue to grapple with the pandemic. This year, in celebration of World Interiors Day, we are turning the spotlight to these Interior Design Studios that continuously provide aid through fundraising efforts and utilizing their passion to help fight the invisible enemy.
JOHN RYAN SANTOS + PARTNERS
With the rising number of COVID-19 patients, several hospitals across the nation have declared that they can no longer accommodate patients as it reached the maximum capacity of their facility. John Ryan Santos + Partners, responded to the shortage of beds in the Philippine hospitals by shifting their operations to design a Rapid-Build Hospital Isolation Units (RBHI). The proposed facility can be buildable in two weeks and can be built within the land area of hospitals. John Ryan Santos + Partners are currently working with private health sectors as they implement this project.
