Orange County Register


Newport Beach-based H. Hendy Associates, an interior architecture and planning firm, has finished work on a 4,654-square-foot therapy/counseling center in Irvine.

The collaborative care concept by Ethera wants to “transform the experience of mental healthcare through the power of meaningful connection,” according to Hendy.

The new center has 15 counseling and therapy rooms, a lobby and a 918-square-foot coworking hub. Additional spaces include art and family therapy rooms as well as a children’s counseling space and a playroom.

Hendy’s work included designing features that included finishes, color scheme, and work spaces oriented along large windows.

The firm also worked with an acoustic specialist to create a sound-masking system that provides the privacy needed for client-patient confidentiality.

Hendy said it worked with Indi Savitala of CSDA Design Group and the interior workspace design was completed by Louise Wade in Laguna Beach.
