Hospital buildings are one of architecture production that involve in affording specific human needs of users, so these needs were studied for the purpose of identifying elements of spatial environment that support and afford these needs within hospital building. Healing environment as requested to be implemented in hospitals is the main goal and could achieve complete fulfilling human needs of hospital users. Research problem based on the lack of clear determination and the role of the design elements required in hospital buildings to support and improve healing process, research hypothesis stated the importance of design components in supporting healing environment in hospitals buildings. Methodology of research implemented two access the first was to determine design elements that support healing environment and finding out their role, the second was the practical side to check and evaluate founded design elements importance.
